Saint of the Day Quote: Blessed Giuseppe “Pino” Puglis

I’ve been expecting you. The last words of Blessed Giuseppe “Pino” Puglis, said to the two Mafia hit men sent to murder


  1. I had to look up what the word was. The fist being an M is not obvious to me. And, the first thing I think of when I see the Y is an O. I like the idea though.

  2. “COEXIST” sticker means two things. One, the owner of this car is a moron. And, two, “Bend over. Here it comes again.”
    If a person rolled out engulfed in flames from a burning car with that sticker, I’d immediately say a Rosary for the conversion of sinners.

  3. “Coexist: Convert to the Roman Catholic Church” and “Coexist with the Unborn” are my father’s only bumper stickers. Equal parts embarassing, snarky, and provocative.

  4. As one citizen of hades asked of another,; “Say, how long does this coexist stuff last down here anyway?”

  5. In a metro area that bumper sticker is not alone on the rear of a beat up car driven by an angry, agressive young driver. Unusally there’s a few of the following plastered over the back for: rock bands, Che Gueverra, pro-choice or reproductive rights, black power, rock concerts, Save the Baby Whales, PETA, Hillary in (pick the year), any state or national Democratic ticket or Ralph Nader, anti- “W” Bush, sexual or double entendre or just plain obscene, Rainbow, Smurf (?) and of course the O which to my mind looks a little too much like the Imperial Japanese battle flag. Hopefullly the setting sun, not the rising sun.
    On my soccer mom mini-vans over the years I’ve had only three bumper stickers: “Go Navy”, “Save The Baby Humans” and “Adoption is an Option”. Of the latter two, one was torn off my car in Little Italy Boston and the d in Adoption was changed to a b in a church parking lot.

  6. T Shaw: Thanks, you’ve reminded me of a missed opportunity for the last presidential campaign:
    O’Bama Biden
    The BOHICA Bros – although it could be reworked for Hill and her running mate.
    A play on the name of an old comic strip in the USNA Midshipmen magazine: The brothers were two hapless mids on the receiving end of the faculty and staff for infractions. Only now, it’s we the citizens and it’s not funny; it’s serious.

  7. and of course the O which to my mind looks a little too much like the Imperial Japanese battle flag
    Jeeze, no need to be that nasty to the Japanese. They only did ONE undeclared attack, and (obviously) were perfectly capable of being reformed.

  8. “When I am weaker than you, I ask you for freedom because that is according to your principles; when I am stronger than you, I take away your freedom because that is according to my principles.”

    “Children of Dune” Frank Herbert

  9. Atheism is a belief that is inimical to the free exercise of religion. Atheism is the unconstitutional prohibition thereof. The atheist must be tolerated in the case that the atheist chooses to become a believer. Atheism is the eradication of every human right to freedom. Co-exist with other men. The principles set forth by this bumper sticker are anathema to freedom and our constitution. That is how we got where we are. When the people object to the principles of same sex marriage, the gays talk about “orphans”. When the people talk about orphans, Obama removes any aid to Catholic Charities for orphans and sex traffic victims. Its persons, then, it principles… swindle. The sovereign person constitutes the government. The government against the people is communism.
