Contemplata aliis Tradere

A meagre contribution to the mission and work of the Order of Preachers: my reflections, thoughts, ideas and the occasional rant on matters mainly theological, philosophical and ecclesiastical, drawn primarily from my reading and experience of life and the world. Striving to be always Catholic, firmly Christian and essentially Dominican, flavoured with dashes of Von Balthasar.

His Eminence George Cardinal Pell

Marvellous photos of the man who will organize WYD 2008 in Sydney! His Eminence donned the magnificent cappa magna as he went to preside at Pontifical Vespers for the Juventutem group in Dusseldorf during the recent WYD 2005. Doesn't he look every foot a Prince of the Church?!

He reminds me of the Papal Legates (with their royal robes and entourage) whom St. Dominic and Bishop Diego met on their journey.
