This photo is a bit grainy and dark, but it definitely is far sight material.
Before becoming archbishop of Toledo and Primate of Spain in 1941, Cardinal Pla y Deniel served as bishop of Avila (1918-1935) and Salamanca (1935-1941). He was created a Cardinal in 1946 with the title of S. Pietro in Montorio.
During the Spanish civil war, Pla y Deniel offered his episcopal palace in Salamanca to Franco as headquarters.
To get a feeling for the power-grid in which the Church can be caught (willingly or unwillingly), here is an interesting story: On the 2nd of October in 1936, Spanish "Republicans" shot 21 year old Blessed Bartolomé Blanco Márquez, youth secretary of Catholic Action in Pozoblanco, for being a "Catholic Leader". 18 years later, in 1954, Franco wanted father Jesús Iribarren, editor of Ecclesia, official weekly of the same Catholic Action, fired from his job for writing an article against press censorship. The regime asked cardinal Pla y Deniel to fire the man. The Cardinal refused but later secretly suspended Iribarren on the grounds that he had not submitted his controversial article to his superiors, as a bishop's conference affirmed. So the priest was suspended because of a formal error, not because of the content of his article. What the cardinal respectively the bishop's conference did might not have been a hero's action, but I still find it interesting.
Two men from the Catholic Action persecuted by two different regimes with two completely different world-views and ideologies: As long as you are truly Catholic, you will have to be aware that the world is your enemy, be it the "left" half or the "right".
