When prelates die...

Reader Eman asked, if I had any photos of bishops or cardinals lying in state. I must admit that I don't have any in my collection right now but I am diligently combing through the internet to find some.

This would be a good opportunity to ask readers who should happen to have said photos to produce a scan and fork'em over, so I can post them (for Eman and everybody else who'd like to see them (me included)).

What I did find was a photo from the funeral of a cardinal in Belgium. It was taken in Malines and while the caption didn't give any name it said "before 1909", so I figure the prelate in question is Pierre-Lambert Cardinal Goosens who was archbishop of Mecheln from 1884 to 1906 and was creted a cardinal in 1889.
