Photos of the Month (01/2006)


In order to make up for my horrible lazyness I present a couple of those hard-to-find colour photos of the Cappa Magna.

1.) Valerio Cardinal Valeri, crowning the statue of Our Lady of the Cape, Queen of the Holy Rosary, in Quebec in the Marian year of 1954.

2.) Lorenz Cardinal Jäger from Paderborn/Germany on the day of his return from Rome. He was created a cardinal on January 15th 1965 and I think he was the last German cardinal who had the pleasure of wearing the cappa.

3.) A terrific shot of Eugene Cardinal Tisserant, taken on occasion of the 800-year celebrities in the Austrian pilgrimage town of Mariazell.

4.) That's a fun shot. Somebody obviously liked this photograph of Laurean Cardinal Rugambwa (the first African elevated to that honor) so much, that he or she (how do you like my inclusive language? Très PC, non?) colorized it.

5.) And the first price of the Alec-Guinness-lookalike-contest goes to...: Joseph Cardinal Wendel from Munich/Germany, pictured here with a cardinalatial cappello.

Very fun, as always.

Thanks for providing these.

A picture of Cardinal Pell wearing the cappa, and looking most uncomfortable, during a Traditional Mass at WYD caused outrage here in Australia. The usual thing, think how many poor people could have been fed with the money spent on all that material! lol
