Cardinal?! As much as I want him to be removed from his current position, I definitely wouldn’t want Abp. Marini to be promoted to the Sacred College! Reply Student June 6, 2006 - 5:39 pm Going back to your article about college to catholic, why is it funny its true and there are alot of angry students voicing their opinions!

BMP Reply Maureen June 7, 2006 - 5:51 pm If that’s an old-style aspergillum, I can see the resemblance in aspergillum funguses. Reply Rich June 7, 2006 - 6:32 pm Why do they use these evergreen aspergillium deals? I like the old all-metal ones that work. It also holds a lot of water. These branches don’t. I guess it’s the attempt to be more “natural”. I bet the Pope is silently saying here, “Never again.” Reply Panda Rosa June 7, 2006 - 10:33 pm PARSLEY! You always forget the Parsley! Reply CaesarMagnus June 8, 2006 - 12:44 pm I’ve never understood that “style” of aspergellum. They end up soaking one person, then nobody else gets any holy water … until the cleric dunks it again. Dunk, soak 1 person, repeat. Reply MaryC June 8, 2006 - 7:02 pm “The Vatican economy drive means we can no longer afford a window cleaner”.
