Sihaya has been on a hunt of Ratzi photos from his cardinal years. I think the first one
is something we have not seen before in this particular version. They may be reposts
but does anyone really mind?
When Ratzi got his biretta from Papa Montini -
His Elegance, the Cardinal:
This first two pictures are from Russi's site -
This one I know we posted a few months back in a series of photos
taken at this couch in the CDF -
And a small but beautiful snapshot:
This comes from a series of pictures posted in the main forum early on, from a vacation visit
of Ratzi and Georg to a castle in the Tirol, with some great pictures of both of them in civvies-
And from more recent events:
Papa in Cologne (I think never seen before)- this is STUNCHISSIMO indeed!!!!!
And this great ageless profile, which may have been from the Good Friday Via Crucis of 2006.
[As it is a Corbis picture, Nessuna or Papa B Fan may be able to get us the 'clean' version.]
