Timely perfection! Your work is always eye and thought opening!

With sincere apologies and basic institutional changes, I hope. Your mother and mine must have had the same kind of nuns as teachers.

Thanks, Sandy/fourwinds.

...because the world we live in pokes and provokes.

Thanks, Sue/tumblewords.

why in Rome?
why not Paris?

Hi Mita--The scandal, unfortunately, has something to do with the Catholic Church. Its head, the Pope, resides in the Vatican in Rome. The scandal refers to the mishandling by church authorities of cases of priests who had sexually abused young children in the past. Such cases have been reported in the U.S., Ireland, and Germany.

Good wishes.

Unfortunately, the shepherd is not always perfect and the sheep suffer for it.

Thanks, Sandra.

Hi Henrique. Just my luck, my translator is not working. I hope you don't mind--What does "bichinhos" mean?
