SignWriting List
November 16, 2009

Hello Stefan!
That would be a great idea! The box of books I shipped is already in  
Rome, sitting in foreign customs, and I hope it will be delivered in  
time to the Vatican. Since I live on the other side of the globe, the  
package had to be sent at least two weeks in advance...so it is  
already sent...

And I doubt if the Pope personally will be a part of this conference  
for the Deaf...I wish the Pope would see the books too! But I suspect  
that the Vatican holds many conferences in their facilities for  
various subjects related to the Catholic Church, and this conference  
is probably just one of many...but I am hoping that the Deaf priests  
and deacons who attend the conference will receive copies, of both  
Maltese Sign Language and ASL, and that will be wonderful...the Deaf  
deacons and priests are coming from all over the world to attend this  
conference, so there are probably sign languages from many countries  
involved in the conference...

One thing we could do...if you want to write the Lord's Prayer in  
German Sign Language in your German Literature Puddle, or post a PDF  
of the document to the SignWriting List, I could certainly send it to  
my contact at the Vatican, as an attachment through email....would you  
like me to do that? That would be wonderful, Stefan, thank you!

Val ;-)
