Why is it that the photos with the cappa magna always are black and white?

More Cardinal Stritch





Sorry for the watermarks on the last two photos. They're still pretty cool, though, wouldn't you say?

Amleto Cardinal Cicognani

I'm back!

You poor and dear readers probably thought I fell off the earth. Don't worry, I am still here, but I got caught up in a lot of work, so I wasn't really able to blog.

Just to clarify: Blogging will continue for as long as I can find new material. Even if you don't see any new postings for a long, long time, it doesn't mean that I stopped blogging. When I finally shut down the blog, I'll let you know early enough, so you can observe an appropriate time of mourning and maybe send me some "last minute"-pictures to post.


Why don't we start with part one of a "New photos pf Cardinal Spellman" two-part-mini-series? Most of the photos have watermarks, but they are still worth seeing.







Part two: Tomorrow!
