The Miracle of St Peters

ITALY | Thursday, 31 May 2007 | Views [930]

It is said that by standing in the afternoon sunlight shed from the dome aloft of St Peters Cathederal, ones sins can be forgiven.  However don't bask in it for two long as the complex concave curvature of the stainglass window intensifies the sun passing through it, and some desperate sinners have required hospitalisation with second degree burns.

A new addition to services provided by St Peters Church are Drink stations and medical staff that are on call during working hours and are mainly there to attend false stigmata claims and other minor miracles.  On one occassion an elderly man confessed to being able to see again, but in his frenzied excitement accidently impaled himself on a crusifix at the church alter.  Emergency staff also hand out bottled water after 10pm when the Vatican City is transformed into one of the worlds biggest Discoteks - Complete with glitter ball and guest DJ appearence by Pope Benedict.  His specialty being an eclectic mix of Sermon and Snoop Dog.

Italy has been fantastic.  Met a few Brazilians and we tore up Italy, Going from Rome to Firenze to Sienna, to Balogna, to Milan.  I am still in Italy, and I will update again about my travels here when I get a chance.  The food is senational. Pizza, pizza, and spagetti, and other tomato meaty food.  I will expand on this further in some later entries.
