I had picked up some rosaries at the Vatican for my family members.  There was a big sign in the store that said it was illegal to sell blessed rosaries anywhere in the world.  I decided that I would still get them blessed while I was in Italy.  Shouldn’t be hard to find a priest in Italy.  We were moving along so fast most of the tour that I never had time.  While in Venice we were standing outside of Basilica di San Marco and David says there is a priest.  I go over and ask if he would mind blessing some rosaries for me.  Expecting to be answered in Italian it came to great surprise to me when I am answered in a midwestern accent.  I did get the rosaries blessed in Italy by an American priest who happen to be good friends with our arch bishop in Anchorage.
