    It's also Anne Rice's birthday! =D

  2. "Rebuild my Church .... and bless animals and other stuff..."

  3. Will his illustrious self perhaps post any image of St Francis he has created? I mean, if you can do such a good Rocco...

  4. Matt - LOL! I just wrote about his reputation as the first humane society worker.

    Tubbs - I did do an image of him for a church once - I'll see if I can find it.

    E - you love Anne don't you. Happy b-day Ms. Rice!

  5. How I wish you could "re-do" the backdrop Fr Groeschel sits in front of on his EWTN show every Sunday night.
    Probably it was painted by some dear friar ten times holier than myself, but oh, how it bothers me! It is obviously a painting of St Francis, but the raised hand with the stigmata has been rendered so poorly it looks like a foot. It's all I can focus on during the program.
    Yeah, I need to get over it, but I can't.

  6. Julie - I know of which you speak - I think it was a panel from the old M. Angelica set.
