The Coffee Pot / Re: Is Chicago Deep Dish pizza...

Quote from: drummerboy on Today at 07:15:31 PMI voted casserole.  My wife made a pizza casserole once and it was virtually a deep dish pizza.

Not a fan of N.Y. thin crust.  I had it once, at a local restaurant started by a guy from N.Y., so its as close as I'll ever get to the original.  Very disappointing.


I have also met people in Wisconsin that say that Papa Murphy's is the best pizza in town. Or worse people who actually like kwik trip pizza. No offense against you, but Wisconsinites just don't seem to get pizza.

My Wisconsin raised wife loves NY pizza and detests Chicago pizza. Maybe it's my influence though.

If the Mets get to the pendant this year it will N.Y. pizza and Brooklyn lager in this house.

When I was a kid, my dad always ordered extra cheese on pizza, but we always got pan/hand-tossed style.  One of his co-workers suggested he try the new place that offered Chicago-style deep dish, so he did and made the usual order, but deep dish.   What we got was a brick of cheese with a little sauce on the top and a little bread on the bottom.

Quote from: JJoseph on Today at 02:21:51 AMYup. Me too.

And Pope Francis is 87.

It's unlikely he will govern the Church much longer.

Cardinal Erdo, Archbishop of Budapest in Hungary, is considered a Papabile. He respects the TLM, and is favorable to outreach toward the Orthodox. He would probably be the best candidate.

"Hungarian Cardinal Péter Erdő – Archbishop of Esztergom-Budapest – may be emerging as a front-runner to succeed Pope Francis. Cardinal Erdő is considered a traditionalist who respects the celebration of the Latin Mass. But Cardinal Erdő is also respected by liberals like the Holy Father, suggesting he could be a unifying force within the Church. Pope Francis has already appointed Cardinal Erdő as the "relator general" of the Third Extraordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops. The Hungarian cardinal has also been vocal in his support for outreach to Orthodox Christians which may be significant given the huge numbers of Ukrainians currently in Hungary. "

Who would trust this Hungarian when Bergolio is so very fond of him?


According to a prominent Catholic portal, Pope Francis could well name Cardinal Péter Erdő as his successor.  . . . Pope Francis has already appointed Cardinal Erdő as the "relator general" of the Third Extraordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops

At Aquila in Abruzzi, St. Bernardin of Siena, priest of the Order of Friars Minor, who added to the glory of Italy by his preaching and his example.

At Rome, St. Plautilla, wife of a consul, sister of the consul Flavius Clemens, and mother of the holy virgin Flavia Domitilla, both martyrs. She was baptized by the apostle St. Peter, and after giving an example of all the virtues, she rested in peace.

Quote from: james03 on May 16, 2024, 08:06:28 AMSpiritual Retreats:

You could try a pilgrimage.  Three Hearts Pilgrimage will be in October.  Very well attended.

https://www.threeheartspilgrimage.org/

 The wife and myself have a retreat scheduled in a few months with the Byzantine monks at Holy Resurrection in St. Nazianz, WI.  And to think I grew up in the area and never visited, now I'm fixing my mistake. 


Let us know how it goes, sounds awesome

Yes, we've always wanted to do a couples' retreat.

We had a 3 day-er set with the SSPX, then, pregnancy stopped that.

Being childless does have some upsides, not that the downsides outweigh them.

I know...you two are always in our prayers.

QuoteI'll let ya'll know how it goes.  I had to first reassure the wife that I was not going to switch to the Eastern Rite to eventually become a married priest  :-[   But I have always been intrigued by Byzantine spirituality, etc, plus I really need a retreat and some serious prayer and direction in my life, so "two birds with one stone" as they say.  Listening to that "Pints With Aquinas" guy talk about his time on retreat there really convinced me to go too.

I pray that it be fulfilling and sublime for both of you.

Not beyond the realm of impossibility the legions of hell grit their teeth at giving children irreparable hormone therapy, "dilation," surrogacy, and other modern evils.
