The Vatican first went online in 1996 at www.vatican.va. The site was powered by three host computers named after the archangels Raphael, Michael and Gabriel. The Pope himself moved into cyberspace in 1998 and the world's one billion Roman Catholics were able to hear and see him recite the Angelus prayers on Sundays and listen to his weekly audience on Wednesdays. A friend of mine told me that the Pope said one time that, "The pyramids are ancient abandoned shopping malls," or at least that's what he thought he heard him to say, because later my friend wasn't so sure. Maybe his Saint Isidore wasn't working.
Saint Clare of Assisi, the patron saint of television, hasn't been doing a very good job, either. TV's been getting worse since she was put in charge, and I haven't seen a single icon of her anywhere, not even in Mexican airline offices where they got everybody else.
Are all saints useless or just these two?
