One of the gems of 1950s and 60s Catholic publishing was a series of collections of short stories (translated from Italian) by an author named Giovanni Guareschi about the parish priest of a small town in the Po river valley and his rival (and friend) the town's communist mayor. In the past I've run several individual Don Camillo stories, with the help of a site which features most of the Dom Camillo stories online.
Today I wanted to link to a series of three stories, however, so links will have to suffice. This is from the collection The Little World of Don Camillo.
