V. O Lord, open my app. R. While my assistant fetches my panini.
Second from the left, though I think he'd rather be identified as "third from the Far Right," Monsignor Guido Marini, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI's former and Papa Francesco's current MC, was just sighted in New York City's Penn Station.
Check out the Obama-Administration-provided gang of super cassock-wearing Secret Service ops . . . . scary-looking dudes!
It looks like they're all reciting the Divine Office from their iBreviary app . . . . . I'm sure they all rose simultaneously and did the profound bow expected at the Gloria Patri . . .
All this brought back memories of Monsignor Guido's truly thunderous "Extra Omnes" at the opening of the Conclave that terminated Gutsy Guido's favorite velvet mozzetta, since, "The Carnival is over . . . "
I wonder if "Macho Man Marini" and the "Soutane Swingers" made it to the Village during their visit . . .
