This Blog is now officially closed. I simply don't have time to maintain it anymore. I hope you enjoyed the photos I provided over the years. It's been fun for me at least. God bless you all and Ciao! (Blog will remain online in case anybody wants to look at some of the photos again)

Happy New Year!

You probably thought that I let this blog die without even telling you.

Well, I didn't.

I just don't have the time and the material anymore to update the blog frequently.

But since this is a new year and since I haven't been posting for a while, here are some random photos from France you might enjoy:

Archbishop Dubillard of Chambery

An unidentified bishop

It's always good to have a canon in the mix

Some archbishop of Toulouse

Mgr Catteau, bishop of Lucon

Mgr Sagot du Varoux, bishop of Agen
