Easter in Padova.............


The brothers of Mons. Gino.....they all look alike.....

She is the mother of the Parish priest....she is 92 and still going strong....dancing like a queen....sings like an opera singer....


The Tridum celebration....well organised....the laity play a big role.....in conducting the liturgy 
The Tridum


Don Luigi and Don Caterino...one is a hospital chaplain and Luigi is a retired priests...devotes his time for the confessions...a good singer...


some of the senior retired priests....they sit for confessions....every day four hours.....

The dean conducted the Housie Housie games.......

The family get together began at 7pm and ended at midnight....can imagine what a gala time we had...this is typical Italian family celebrations.....they really celebrate the feasts.....eating and drinking....chatting....young and old....sharing their experiences...

Easter evening the parish priest invited me to his family for the dinner....we were about 32 of us...his entire family was together.....we played....sang and danced....his mother who is 92 years old....she was a dancer earlier and she danced to the tune of Bollywood songs which i sang for them...


All the priests of the deanery gathered together for the Holy Thursday celebration.....we had a very good lunch and at the end we played Tombola.....
