Quote of the Day

“I think it's very important to be able to see the funny side of life and its joyful dimension and not to take everything too tragically. I'd also say it's necessary for my ministry. A writer once said that angels can fly because they don't take themselves too seriously. Maybe we could also fly a bit if we didn't think we were so important.
–Pope Benedict XVI

...and on this feast of the Guardian Angels, buona festa a tutti – especially to the angels who light, guard and guide each of our paths.
