Vatican News Service Closed For August

 I  was a bit perplexed when I saw this notice this afternoon:

VATICAN CITY, 29 JUL 2011 (VIS) - We remind our readers that the Vatican Information Service will remain closed during the entire month of August. Service will resume on Thursday 1 September.

Oh well, I guess it's down to poor old Rocco Palmer and the rest of us Catholic bloggers to keep the ball rolling until then. :-))

                                             Now what can we get up to ?.......................

Nice to know the Vatican joins with the rest of the Mediterranean Europeans and heads for the coast. Must not be planning to take their laptops with them. Let's hope nothing important happens in August.

Too right !! but I would have thought someone would be left holding the fort- goes to show you that you just can't get the staff any more these days !
