John XIII...

... surrounded by the splendor that should soon become a thing of the past for all, a beauty sorely missed for many and a scandalous offense first for the ideologists and then for their disciples.

Greetings Leo!

Great photos as usual!

Quick observation though,..

The first photo seems to show "Il Papa Buono" with his future successor Giovanni Battista Montini? If so, very great shot.. from one to the next..

I think that these photos were posted at the italian forum "Cattolici Romani" some time ago. I'm the user "SanPietro" there.

Thank you and keep up the good work!!

You're right. I think I found the photos on "cattolici romani" a couple of weeks ago. It definitely was some Italian forum.

I'll try to keep up the good work ;-)
(be prepared for a two-week no-blogging Easter-break though!)

Interesting in the one photo how he is kneeling but still wearing the mitre... A mistake on Cardinal Dante's part? Or perhaps yet another rich and now decimated rubrical prescription that we are not aware of.
