I take it you weren't able to find a cheap, last minute flight? Too bad, but thanks for the awesome coverage anyway.
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!
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=1770I seem to recall that they also made the beautiful chasuble he wore at his installation Mass, but I'm not sure.
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?
Is that the one with the shells?
The very same.
