...that color-week is over, but this photo of Juan Cardinal Landázuri Ricketts (1913-1997) can hardly be called "colored". But, it shows us what a OFM-cappa looked like.
As archbishop of Lima/Peru (1955 - 1990) he was well-respected and one of the most prominent churchmen in South America. He was president of the Medellin Conference in 1968 and later either failed to clearly recognize the problems of liberation theology or considered them unimportant in view of what might be gained for the poor. Therefore his relations with the Vatican became a bit complicated under Pope John Paul II. During the 70's - in accordance with the Franciscan ideal and the demands of liberation theology - Landazuri-Ricketts moved out of his archiepiscopal palace into a little house in the workers area of Vitoria/Lima.
