Visit to Barga by the Bishop of Pisa
Giovanni Paolo Benotto, the Bishop of Pisa was visiting Barga today
There has been terrible weather through a good part of Tuscany during the night and today with warnings for gales and high winds and a lot of rain but today strangely enough in Barga it’s bright sunshine.
It’s almost as though somebody had ordered the weather.
Could it just be a coincidence that mons. Giovanni Paolo Benotto, the Bishop of Pisa was visiting Barga today?
The Bishop of Pisa talking (in Italian) with parents this afternoon touched on the lack of communication between parents and children and according to him one of the main problems is in fact, the ever present television in many houses. He advised parents in Barga this afternoon to switch off the television and instead spend time with face-to-face communication.
This was the welcoming speech (in Italian) to the Bishop of Pisa in the Duomo this afternoon asking for help in solving some of the problems arising out of the declining industry in this area and the general economic “malaise” which this area has been suffering from for the last couple of years.
