Hola from Mexico!

I received a shipment from our good friends the Borgias today. Besides the usual generous donation, there is a package containing some green tea. Vincenzo says to give this to his grandfather Donato, but certainly he won't miss a spot of tea or two...

Tea is a proper Catholic drink, brought to England by Catherine of Braganza, the Catholic wife of King Charles II of England (and great granddaughter of Saint Francis Borgia).

God save King Francis!

Here's an epitaph for King Charles II: Here lies a great and noble King Whose promise none relied on.
He never said a foolish thing, nor ever did a wise one.

Anonymous, that disgraceful epitaph was written by the scurrilous whoremonger John Wilmot, Earl of Rochester; the most scandalous member of Court.

If that were not enough, he was a Protestant!

Rev. Father Chad, I believe some penance is needed for one who has read such evil poems.

God save King Francis!
