Default U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia's son a Catholic priest?

I didn't know that! He is! Justice Scalia was being interviewed at C-Span and he introduced his children.

Smile made me laugh

This link made me laugh. It states:

Italian Ancestry Maternal side
Sicilian Ancestry Paternal side

Does one have to be Italian to appreciate the irony, or does everyone else see it too?

I like it, we sicilians like to distinguish ourselves from the rest of Italy

Rob,

believe me I know. I'm married to one. I also have relatives in Pioppo.

I understand there is great devotion to Padre Pio in Sicily. Do you know whether that is true or if it is only inflated reporting?

Also, is devotion to Santa Rosalia still strong? I was there many years ago and I was amazed by it.

Peace.

Peace.

Devotion to Padre Pio is generally strong in Sicily, for example amongst my relatives my grandmother is a devotee of him. Saint Rosalia is patroness of Palermo, the capital city of Sicily, so I suppose devotion to her is stronger in Sicily than in other parts of Italy.
