Blessed Kaiser Karl

Today is the feast day of blessed Kaiser Karl, that is, of His Imperial and Royal Apostolic Majesty, Charles the First, by the Grace of God Emperor of Austria, Apostolic King of Hungary, of this name the Fourth, King of Bohemia, Dalmatia, Slavonia, etc.

Lisa made Paprika Schnitzel today for lunch (from the recipe found in the Bad Catholic's Guide to Wine, Whiskey, and Song, under the entry for Goettweig Abbey). We even found a Gruener Veltliner (an Austrian white wine) called Kaiserstiege. Perfect.

For a little taste of why I love the Habsburgs, honor their memory, and pray for their return to power: Praying with the Kaisers.
