Is Martini Really That Tall?

A sem-brother sees that I'm feeling quite photographic today and sends this priceless shot along -- the two cardinals of Milan, in the Piazza del Duomo there.

There's just always something about that red biretta that gets me.

Apparently, it's leaked out in recent days that Frere Roger of Taize had one of Cardinal Martini's books on his nightstand at the time of his death. It remains there as his room has been kept intact.

I think that Tettamanzi is physically shorter than average.

Though I think that Martini is an intellectual and spiritual giant. A shepherd with a brain and a heart. Certainly my favorite Jesuit.
