What better place than to put your money in the Back of the Holy Spirit?

Wonder if they have to pay the Vatican a royalty for the use of the name.

I just checked the English-Spanish dictionary I have loaded on my Palm PDA and it says that Santo is Saint in English. However, it just occured to me that they probably speak Portugese in Portugal and the translation may be different.

Anyway, nice shot.

You are correct Cal. It is saint in Portuguese also. So, I guess technically it is the bank of the saintly spirit.

I was just speaking to my wife - an obnoxious 'know-it-all' - who informs me that the English word saint comes from Latin, meaning holy, and as well, the English word holy comes from German. English uses two words meaning the same thing - holy means saintly. In English we say Holy Ghost and Holy Spirit - they mean the same, two linguistic derivations.

See what I mean about the obnoxious know-it-all?

All of this from a sign on a bank!
