In the words of Br. César J. Tobón:

“I also want to share with you that this Saturday I acolited the funeral Mass of Colombian Cardinal Darío Castrillón Hoyos. At the end of the rite I had the opportunity to greet Pope Francis and assure him of my prayers for his ministry. While the pope sprinkled the coffin with holy water, I became aware that it was “Peter” who was dismissing the mortal remains of Cardinal Castrillón, and at the same time Pedro was opening the doors of heaven.”


Br. César J. Tobón is directly to the left of the pope, holding the cardinal’s mitre in his hands.

Another OUTSTANDING JTG. It is just amazing. Such a wonderful, warm, fun evening.

Very rewarding and fulfilling both in terms of food, music and bonohime.

We had reservations at 7pm. Usually that is when we leave. But, now Teischan is older and being homeschooled to boot. So, we could stay later. That was good because the acts we like, and have enjoyed over the years, have got pushed back later-and-later as new acts are added earlier in the day.

So, we got to see and listen to our perennial favorites — and they are listed above and below.

We were there till past 9pm when Michael Bourgeois finished his set.

So here are SOME of the pictures I took.

With SINCERE apologies to Rick Page. I just couldn’t reach you behind the drums. Sorry. I TRIED. Honest.

“The Durrells In Corfu” Season 2 Is Now On PBS — And Episode 1 Was Compelling.

by Anura Guruge


Click to access PBS homepage for this British show.




We enjoyed Season 1, though I was disappointed that it was NOT a straight adaptation of “My Family and Other Animals” — a book I read, in Ceylon, when I was about 12 and just loved. I went onto read many of Gerald’s books and become a great fan of his, though I really should (as part of my bucket list read at least one of Larry’s ).

It was cute, funny, appealing, culturally elucidating — and sumptuously filmed and produced.

Watched Season 2 Episode 1. It was good. Kept you fully engaged throughout and had lots of humor.

If you missed it, I think you can catch that episode online or on YouTube.

The 5 Cardinal Designates, Announced By Pope Francis, For The June 28, 2017 Consistory — By Br. César J. Tobón, L.C.

by Anura Guruge



Another masterful new-cardinal graphic by Br. César J. Tobón of Mexico who has provided us with a similar, and much appreciated, graphics ahead of other cardinal creating consistories and whenever there has been major changes to the Roman curia. His beautiful work is always a joy to behold and an honor to present.

This was a cardinal creating consistory announcement out-of-the blue. Many unusual features and I will do a post on them.

Though this graphic is in Spanish it should be easy enough to decipher.

The five designated cardinals are:

Jean Zerbo, Archbishop of Bamako, Mali.

Juan Josè Omella Omella, Archbishop of Barcelona, Spain.

Anders Arborelius, O.C.D., Bishop of Stockholm, Sweden.

Loius Marie Ling Mangkhanekhoun, of the Institute Voluntas Dei, Titular Bishop of Acque Nuove di Proconsulare, Apostolic Vicar of Paské, Laos.

Gregorio Rosa Chávez, Titular Bishop of Mulli, auxiliary of San Salvador, El Salvador.

WOW. WOW. WOW!

Rejoice!


One of my favorite books ever, and I plan to steal a part of the title (as is VALID per copyright law) for one of my next books.

I was made to read this book, as part of my elocution(/English) classes, in Ceylon in the 1960s. I think I was about 12. I can still quote sentences from it! It made quite the impression and impact. I may have read it more than once. I still have a copy — though not the original I had in Ceylon.

I know the kids will LOVE it. So will YOU. This will put Corfu on the map.

Gerald Durrell is a tremendous writer and QUITE the MAN. One of my heroes. His brother is also a famous writer.

Do yourself a HUGE favor and DVR this.

You will THANK ME.
