Still in Canada...

Here are three great photos of Paul Emile Cardinal Leger (one of which long time readers already know). He was archbishop of Montreal from 1950 to 1968. A leading liberal force in during the Second Vatican Council (religious freedom, birth control, conjugal love equals procreation in marriage, the works...), he resigned as Montreal's archbishop in 1968 to go to Africa and perform missionary work.

The photos were of course taken in those years when Leger still fulfilled the duties of his office.
