4 November: Deathmask of St. Charles Borromeo

We have seen this before but I want to share it again.

I tip my biretta to WDTPRSer aventicus   o{]:¬)   for this great glimpse of the deathmask of St. Charles Borromeo.


Truly one of the great noses of all time.

    There are only 2 deathmasks of St. Charles Borromeo. One is at this place and the other is in the Duomo at Milan (at least I think it is in the Duomo). I said Mass today in a Church where St. Charles said Mass.
