I am glad. May this be the beginning of the end of the slanders against him.

I call the photo below "Two Strong Silent Types." I say, "Pio Duodecimo Subito Santo"

What a great picture. Someday someone will put together a book worthily chronicling Catholic Hollywood in the days of the studio system. The stars who were part of that little group had interesting lives -- certainly lives that often included good works and fearsome temptations, some well-known falls from grace, and much less well-known journeys of repentance.
