Fabled Feast of San Gennaro showcases rich traditions and new zeppole-eating contest [In-Depth]

Come for the zeppole and stay for the traditions.

The fabled Feast of San Gennaro returns on Thursday and for 11 days, the clocks will wind back to a time when Little Italy was a major hub of Italian life in New York City.

There will be plenty of sausage and peppers, meatballs, cannoli and a new zeppole-eating contest.

Looming large over it all is San Gennaro, the patron saint of Naples.

Statues of the Third Century Catholic martyr, also known as Januarius the Bishop of Benevento, can be seen throughout the feast, during processions down Mulberry Street, at the shrine in the Church of the Most Precious Blood on Baxter Street and a chapel on the feast route.

“It’s in our blood, it’s in our family,” Danny Fratta, operator of the feast’s popular Danny on the Corner zeppole stand, whose deep family roots in the feast span four generations. “It’s very important to us to keep this tradition alive.”

Fratta, 39, is a member of Figli di San Gennaro, a non-profit group that organizes the feast. The celebration dates back to 1926 when Neopolitan immigrants wanted to continue the September 19 feast day observed back home.

Every year, thousands of people flock to Naples hoping to see the miracle of the saint’s blood, kept in vials, liquefy.

It was also a chance for new Italian immigrants to celebrate their heritage. After being told they would be relegated to worship in the basement of other churches, dominated by Irish Catholics, the community built its own church.

I went to confession this morning as I had the use of my bride's automobile and could get to our parish church (my back is still out to lunch)
My confessor was a young and very holy priest from Africa who took his time with me, and was genuinely concerned about the sins I confessed.
I felt very blessed.
Tonight I'll say a prayer for him and especially for his family in Africa.

If the church splits, which one is the correct church?

Well, that's easy. The one I go with! Ignore those copraphagic neo-Pelagians. :lol:

Besides, we won't schism. Some Jesuit will let Wosbald do his lavender liturgical fan dance and somewhere else some Lefevrist will be doing his Mass in the original Koinite Greek and the rest of us will go chug chug chugging along as always.

The catholic church is a spectrum. Fret not. The autists just found Twitter. Must have been a welcome change for them from being openly laughed at.

This is a group of Catholic bishops. They are discussing whether or not to disobey the disciplines of the Catholic Church.

As far as I can tell, they are not talking about changing any of the doctrines that have been handed down to us from the Apostles.

If they openly defy Rome (in this case, by ordaining married men without proper dispensation), then there could be a split.

If they continue hold to the Apostolic teachings, they they will be like the Orthodox Churches -- still true Churches with true Sacraments, but no longer in communion with the Successor of Peter. At this point, we do not ask which side is "correct." We simply note that there is separation, where before there was unity. Like a family whose members no longer speaking with one another.

In time, the separated brethren could drift into fatal errors and cease to be an Apostolic Church.... as the Church of England did.

Or they could work to restore community with the Catholic Church.... as the SSPX are striving to do.

The one that takes up a second collection, of course!

Going to a mass was on my first bucket list. I went on St. PATRICK'S Day

That's where we all decided to let in a bunch of Muslim refugees, completely changed our cultures, and nobly shared our women with them, right?

The NBA, the Rockets, Pope Francis, Hong Kong and China.
What does the future hold?
Cuss and discuss.
