With the ‘new’ privacy laws when it comes to kids it is getting too complicated to take pictures at events like this — even if they are teenagers, and it is a public event. So, I don’t bother. I take a few pictures of kids I know so I can send them to their parents. I try to take some of mine. At this concert Devanee was perfectly hidden from our view for all the concert. These two peek-a-boo shots were the best I could do.

I definitely, wholeheartedly recommend.

The show was outstanding.

This CD captures as much as you can within the bounds of a CD.

We bought one BEFORE the show. I have already listened to it 2.5 times and it hasn’t even been 22-hours yet.

Brilliant. Wonderful. Definitely worth the $15. {SMILE}

Merry Christmas.

Sri Lankan Archbishop Emeritus Oswald Gomis’ 2016 Christmas Greetings.

by Anura Guruge


fathergomischristmas


arch_oswaldAs with posting the Catholic Press Photo, “Christmas Card,” posting Archbishop Oswald Gomis‘ Christmas card is an honored and cherished privilege.

He has been a good and valued friend for many years.

He and my adoptive father were roughly contemporaneous and firm friends though on many issues related to religion they were on opposite sides. But, that was the beauty and magic of WHAT WAS Ceylon in the 1950s and 1960s. Folks were still friends, relatives and neighbors irrespective of religion.

Father Gomis is a wonderful human being. And to I, that is all that matters.

Enjoy. 

Thank YOU.

Merry Christmas.

If you Italian is a bit rusty what it says is:

Alessia Giuliani

Posting the Catholic Press Photo, “Pope’s Christmas Card,” has been one of my cherished annual traditions since 2008, one that I eagerly look forward to as soon as we enter December.

2010 card, 2012 card, & 2015 card.

I used to post them on my then widely read “Popes and Papacy” blog. Though it is still active I don’t update it much. So this year I am starting by posting the card here.

The Rome-based Catholic Press Photo, established over 40 years ago, now led by Alessia Giuliani, the daughter of one of the founders, has been a good friend. This gives me a chance to highlight their excellent work. Enjoy their pictures … especially those of the cardinals.

This year’s card comes with good wishes from Alessia, Monica, Giancarlo e Emanuela.

Thank YOU.

Merry Christmas.
