We're Moving Today! Friends, Romans, Countrymen and Servants of the Father of Mercy, lend me your ears. Today is moving day! We come together at 10am this Saturday and Sunday morning not to stay in Santa Paula, but to bury it. So let it be. O judgment! thou art fled to brutish beasts, And men have lost their reason. Bear with me; our hearts are now in Ventura. Be in Santa Paula at 10am this morning and well show you the way. And I must pause now till it comes back anew . . .
"Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears" is the first line of a famous and often-quoted speech by Mark Antony in the play Julius Caesar, by William Shakespeare. It is taken from Act III, scene II. The moving day translation is by brother joseph.
