The beekeeping equipment in the cellar of Villa Martelli, now the seminary of St. Philip Neri of the Institute of Christ the King, on via di Gricigliano in the hills above the Tuscan village of Sieci a few kilometers from Florence. :)

I believe dmw has inside information. That is a very, very specific answer. You, sir, have won an all expenses paid-trip to your own refrigerator for a cold beer. Congrats!

Thetimman's basement. These are his child protection vaults where each of his children are sheltered during their adolescence. The three older children are afforded a special suit to allow them to leave the home while still protected from influences of the outside world.

I thought this was a picture from the sacristy of Our Lady of the Angels in LA. I could have sworn I saw those vestments in one of the masses from the LA religious education congress.

Are you sure, Timman?

Really enjoying your blog. I certainly miss the strong Catholic culture that exists in my hometown of St Louis. Off subject, but, I'll be visiting soon and was just wondering if the Oratory is open during the day for visits to the Blessed Sacrament.

Just doing some planning and your input would be very helpful.

Thanks in advance.

I think so; try calling the rectory at 314-771-3100.

So what ended up happening with the St Stan's fiasco?

I finally found the source of this photo! Thanks so much for the challenge. It's great to see these enterprising activities at the Seminary!
