DAVID GRUNFELD / THE TIMES-PICAYUNE Former Ambassador to The Vatican Lindy Boggs pays respect to her long time friend Archbishop Philip Hannan at St. Louis Cathedral in New Orleans Wednesday October 5, 2011. The Archbishop passed away on September 29. Frances Smith, a life long friend of Boggs assists her to the altar.
I watch almost all the live video feed from New Orleans as Archbishop Hannan was taken in House Drawn Funeral Carriage led by a Marching Band to the Cathedral today. It was quite a Catholic and very New Orleans site to behold. I am looking forward to the Mass tomorrow.
However the photo above I think is the most touching for me. Two Catholic Giants in their respective vocations , former Congresswoman and Ambassador Boggs and Archbishop Hannan saying goodbye one last time in this mortal realm.
Rest of Photo galley from Picayune is here.
