Rocco is Back

There are two types of Church observers in the world, the casual observer and the serious observer. And if you are a serious observer, you begin your morning one way and one way only, with a visit to the website Whispers in the Loggia. Rocco Palmo has been off the grid for a few weeks: His grandmother grew gravely ill and then went to her eternal reward. He has a beautiful tribute to her on the mainpage. Now, his "page three" links are back and running. Welcome back Rocco. Blessings upon and prayers for your family and for the repose of the soul of "The Boss."
