Feast of the Three Saints - A Success What is the Pentagon Thinking? I was listening to Jeff Kuhner a few weeks back and he brought up ~the subject of a new training manual being put out by the Department of Defense for recruits in the U.S. military. Our recruits are being trained to spot those with ex- :::.:~ tremist ideologies. Who is on the list of possible terrorists to watch out for? Could it be Al Queda, :i:i perhaps, the Taliban or maybe the Muslim Brotherhood? Guess again, I kid you not as :i::i: Kuhner is always saying on the radio, the extrem- ists to watch out for are quoting Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin and Samuel Adams, the guy not the 'iI beer. That's right, don't worry about radical Islamist terrorists when you have the Tea Party patriots to worry about. Remember that old TV series Lost in Space?. It's danger Will Robinson, time to look out for those who hold our founding fathers up on high. Talk about political correctness. How can you be oblivious to foreign threats that are very real out there and go ape over the Tea Party for trying I to elect its members to the House and Senate up ::i:: i I on Capitol Hill?

"This was a very special Feast for us", said Ray DiFiore. "This year they were honored to have His Eminence Sean Cardinal O'Malley here to celebrate our anniversary with a Mass on Sunday Morning." The Feast honors the Three Martyred Brothers; Alfio, Filadelfo and Cirino. This was brought to Lawrence by Sicilian immi- grants to perpetuate their devotion to the Three Saints, and as always the Feast has flourished through the years. The opening ceremonies on Friday were of a grand proportion in front of City Hall, followed by a fantastic evening of entertain- ment by that international singing sensa- tion Giada Valenti. The torchlight parade took place on Saturday evening, followed by a concert by the dynamic Tony Pace. After the Mass on Sunday, they had the solemn procession of the Three Saints followed with the Moment of Glory with confetti, the release of doves and balloons while playing the three hymns known as the Cantata honoring the Saints. Sunday evening, John Leite entertained the crowd. The entire weekend was filled with food, rides, games and music. The St.Alfio Caf~ also featured music while you enjoyed your favorite Italian dish. There was plenty of free parking and a shuttle bus too.
