Sicily 6: Catania, Sicily’s 2nd Largest City

Catania rests on the east coast of Sicily in the foothills of Mount Aetna. Here are some photos of the city, including the opera house and a fountain that struck me as almost comically candid.

The Opera House named after the composer Bellini. No such thing in Sicily as a major city without an opera house.
Mary, like a good American, looking only slightly bashful.
The fountain again.
And again!
Pigeons on a Balcony
And, as everywhere, politics

My life has had three phases: one as a Jesuit seminarian, recorded in my 2015 memoir (Unsuitable Treasure: An Ex-Jesuit Makes Peace with the Past, Oak Tree Press); another as a college teacher and scholar of 19th century British Literature, best recorded in Coleridge's Progress to Christianity: Experience and Authority in Religious Faith (Associated University Presses, 1995); and finally my current phase as a retiree given to social media posts and photo commentary on my travels with my wife, Mary.
