Back by popular demand... with a little added Romanitas.
Thank you, Tele and Neil. I dearly hope that Fr. Rostand and +Fellay and Co. DO read the forums, and especially this thread. The "Pandora's box" that they have opened is now theirs to close.
Keeping the US District in perspective.
Thank you Ferdinand
A most ingenious "photographic restoration"!
How does Bp. Fellay think he can get away with trying to hijack the hearts and minds of the SSPX? I will never get it.
The Grinder is cranking out Roma Capoccia as the monkey dances.Roma Capoccia
Quanto sei bella Roma quand'e' sera
quando la luna se specchia
dentro ar fontanone
e le coppiette se ne vanno via,
quanto sei bella Roma quando piove.
Quanto sei bella Roma quand'e' er tramonto
quando l'arancio rosseggia
ancora sui sette colli
e le finestre so' tanti occhi,
che te sembrano dì: quanto sei bella.
Oggi me sembra che
er tempo se sia fermato qui,
vedo la maestà der Colosseo
vedo la santità der cupolone,
e so' piu' vivo e so' più bbono
no nun te lasso mai
Roma capoccia der mondo infame,
na carrozzella va co du stranieri
un robivecchi te chiede un po'de stracci
li passeracci so'usignoli;
io ce so'nato Roma,
io t'ho scoperta stamattina.Rome
How beautiful you are oh Rome in the evenings
when the moon reflects itself
inside the big fountain
and the couples desert the streets
How beautiful you are oh Rome when it rains
How great you are oh Rome when it’s dusk
and the orange turns red
on top of your seven hills
and the windows are like numerous eyes
that seem to tell you: how beautiful you are!
Today it feels like
if time had stopped here
I see the majesty of the Colosseum
I see the sanctity of the big Dome
and I am more alive and I am better
no, I’ll never leave you
Rome, head of this infamous world
a carriage drives away two foreigners
a second-hand dealer asks you if you’ve got some rags
the bedraggled sparrows are nightingales
I was born in Rome
I discovered you this morning
