After the Mass photo roundup

Praying at the tomb of Francis. My two favorite people in the same room.

That nun [Sister Immaculata, Mother Superior] might well have the greatest honor in the world!

  1. I take it you weren't able to find a cheap, last minute flight? Too bad, but thanks for the awesome coverage anyway.

  2. Regretfully, I was unable to find an affordable ticket. Nonetheless, it has been fun providing this roundup for you, and there is more yet to come!

  3. Mother Immaculata is Superior of the cloistered Capuchin Clares of the Monastery of the Holy Cross. All 30 of them are German, and the Pope has often visited them as Cardinal. See http://www.papanews.it/news.asp?IdNews=1770
    I seem to recall that they also made the beautiful chasuble he wore at his installation Mass, but I'm not sure.

  4. Thank you for that wonderful site, Berolinensis! I hadn't found that one before; it's wonderful! I only wish I could read Italian...

    The Sisters may have made the chasuble he wore at his installation Mass, but it would have been some time prior. I have seen a photograph of Pope John Paul II in the chasuble. I wonder if they have an extra one I could have?
