Cardinal Manuel Arteaga auctioned the ring to raise funds for charity. Mr. Gaspar Pumarejo, TV enterpreneur, bought it and years later, as an exile in Puerto Rico, gave it as a present to Archbishop Luis Aponte Martínez of San Juan (later a cardinal himself), who promised to the Cuban exiles that one day he would return it to a free Cuba. I believe Cardinal Aponte still has the ring.
That is an interesting story!BTW: Are you THE Salvador Miranda of "Cardinals of the Holy Roman Church"-fame? If so: Great website!
was I just out blinged? I think I was out blinged.
