BLESSING OF THE BEER BOTTLE ORGAN

Organ now located in German chapel


Hat tip to the Curt Jester!

Anyone remember my original post about this organ (pictured left)?

Well, after many an Oktoberfest, it made its way to the Alte Kapelle (Old Chapel) in Regensburg, Germany, and was blessed today by none other than our Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI.

Peace,
