    Gaudete omnes! David, I must commend you for making your own pierogi. I cheat and get them from the deli :-(

    Perhaps the most touching scene this Christmas so far was the dismissal of the “catechumens” at Midnight Mass, St. Catherine Church, Manger Square. The non-Christians (perhaps mostly Muslims) lined up. Two priests gave the solemn Pax greeting to those leaving the church. This was a very beautiful sign of peace and unity in a world where Muslims especially are often unfairly maligned.

    I wish the happiest Christmas and Epiphany for you David, your family, and all who read VN.

      The secret to making pierogi is the dough. Over the past 30 years we tried a bunch of recipes (including one memorable year when we bought wonton wrappers at the Chinese grocery store) until a Polish waitress gave us her mother’s recipe.

      Peace and all good!

        Actually, it’s the filling. But that’s OK.

          Very important, but we always found it easy to make very good filling. As I said, it took years to learn how to make the dough.
