The June 2006 issue of Vanity Fair Magazine mentions Princess Gloria and one of our local leaders:
"In 1991 she made her first visit to Lourdes, where she worked as a volunteer with the sick and dying who go there in hope of a miraculous cure. On a trip to Florence six years later, she became enthralled with Mons. Michael Schmitz, the vicar-general of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest, a conservative Catholic organization dedicated to restoring the Latin Mass. She also cultivated a friendship with the Bavarian-born Cardinal Josef Ratzinger, one of the most powerful figures in the Vatican."
Yes, that is Msgr Schmitz, the Vicar General of The Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest, heralding from the South Side at the old St. Gelasius Parish.
Good to see one of our own making the secular press in a very pleasant article about the restoration of Faith in one family.
