Re: A path in life

Agustin had just been told that he had to take his new parish until Saint Anthony's feast. It was good news, but at the same time it required coordinating some heavy work. This was what he was thinking for, after having written a letter to his eldest brother, to ask him to be given help for moving -...

Caring for the orphans

June, 21 San Zanipolo Church, then Ospedaletto - continued from here - [br] It was a nice morning, and Padre Agustin had just finished the Mass. He had two hours available until the first class at Ospedaletto. Besides Religion, that he was teaching to all classes, to each upon their understanding, ...

Re: God Only Knows

Agustin was happy for his students that they were going to receive a donation. Donations for the Ospedaletto weren't uncommon, but they came mostly from the really wealthy people. Madame Hebert didn't look like this. He was worried that piety, generosity or vanity, any of them valid reasons for peop...

Re: God Only Knows

Agustin nodded and sighed. "I have wondered about the same things… You are not the only one to ask such rhetorical questions. I guess only God knows the answer… Or, more likely, the Evil one, as wars and rebellions are his doing, not God's…" The interesting woman seemed not to like talking about her...

Re: God Only Knows

Agustin bowed his head. "Yes, everyone has heard. Monasteries have been closed. At San Giorgio Maggiore, where I have done my apprenticeship before being granted my own parish, there were Benedictine reffugees from French monasteries," he confirmed.

Re: God Help The Outcasts

Agustin looked at Jian in surprise, finding that, once he thought about the subject, the man was somehow right. "I have never thought of this, but you make a good point. I had learnt Florentine first, as a foreign language, then Latin and French… and I found out that Spanish was easy when I had to l...

Re: God Only Knows

Agustin smiled when he heard about Saint Domingue. He liked being told about far away countries. "I have read that it is an impressive place," he said. "I have never got the opportunity to go too far from Venice. To the mainland, yes, a few times, but still in Veneto. And I like having the opportuni...

Re: God Only Knows

Agustin liked her simple way of talking, being surprised that she knew the Latin words to reply to the benediction. Yes, they were usually learnt for Confirmation, but many priests glossed over these, focusing on the main prayers only. It meant she was educated. She further spoke in Venetian, with a...

Re: God Only Knows

It was San Antonio's feast . Most Christians went today to another church in the same neighbourhood, dedicated to the saint of the day, the one known to perform all kind of miracles, to help in matters of the heart, of injustice and stolen things. He was one of the most popular saints, so the church...

Re: God Help The Outcasts

He could see the man was tired and hungry, but it seemed that God’s words were keeping him interested. ”Once it was a whale. Several times it was a tomb. And other times God made Himself known in other ways. With ten pests, for example. I agree with you, there are strange ways sometimes,” Agustin re...
