Tech-Free Lent

We’ve recently been experiencing some technical difficulties with our Internet connection, so for a laugh and frustration reliever (granted, only feasible if we were able to connect to the network), I was going to post an open letter on the blog suggesting to our neighboring Italians that they consider giving up their Web access during Lent so that Martello and I could benefit from the renewed speed. Well, it turns out that the Pope beat us to the punch! Pope Benedict has, in fact, suggested that the faithful “unplug” during these weeks of prayer and reflection. Trofie Wife thinks it’s a fantastic idea, and given the improved Internet speed over the past week, I do believe that many Catholics have taken it to heart. Grazie mille! For details, see

Baci e gelato,
