    Well, even Saints have their indiscretions ...

    SnowBasin in Utah has a John Paul Lodge and Lift?

    I am going to start keeping all my old ski stuff just in case ...

    A Catholic school in Tennesse, USA that is named after the late Pope John Paul II has managed to acquire a ski jacket worn by the pontiff, a keen skier throughout his life.

    If jacket is C&A Rodeo, will it be a "first class relic"?

    "If the late pope is ever canonized, the jacket would be considered a second-class relic," said Bishop Kmiec of Buffalo, N.Y.

    Yes, another inane post and lame attempt at inside humor.

    I sent in a detailed multi-media application quite some time ago but haven't heard back from them yet.

      How about St. Stephen?

      "St. Stephen"

      Saint Stephen with a rose, in and out of the garden he goes,
      Country garden in the wind and the rain,
      Wherever he goes the people all complain.

      Stephen prospered in his time, well he may and he may decline.
      Did it matter, does it now? Stephen would answer if he only knew how.
      Wishing well with a golden bell, bucket hanging clear to hell,
      Hell halfway twixt now and then,
      Stephen fill it up and lower down and lower down again.

      Lady finger, dipped in moonlight, writing "What for?" across the morning sky.
      Sunlight splatters, dawn with answer, darkness shrugs and bids the day goodbye.

      Speeding arrow, sharp and narrow,
      What a lot of fleeting matters you have spurned.
      Several seasons with their treasons,
      Wrap the babe in scarlet colors, call it your own.
      Did he doubt or did he try? Answers aplenty in the bye and bye,
      Talk about your plenty, talk about your ills,
      One man gathers what another man spills.

      Saint Stephen will remain, all he's lost he shall regain,
      Seashore washed by the suds and foam,
      Been here so long, he's got to calling it home.

      Fortune comes a crawlin', calliope woman, spinnin' that curious sense of your own.
      Can you answer? Yes I can. But what would be the answer to

        I have no idea what this means... but where is the like button?
