OK, But Do They Still Call Him "Hollywood"?

There's Cardinal Roger Mahony of Los Angeles, showing off what John Paul gave him.... Looks like he thinks he's John Wayne or something. Or just a "We don't take shots of our own" glance. You never know.

Prominent backs of heads featured: Norberto Rivera Carrera (Mexico City), Tettamanzi (Milan), Polycarp Pengo (Dar es Salaam), Schonborn (you know him), Gulbinowicz (emeritus of Wroclaw; the fella whose age was confused)....

And here we have the hardest- working octogenarian in the College -- possibly the hardest- working of them all -- the venerable Avery Dulles, S.J., with the back-head of the noble Jean-Louis Tauran, currently the Archivist and Librarian of the church.

I'm told Dulles has worked a full schedule of speaking engagements and other academic commitments into his time in Italy.... He just doesn't stop and his pace routinely tests the vigor of those much younger than he who try and keep up.

God love 'im.
