In Memoriam: Giulio Andreotti (RIP 1919-2013)

Yours truly was privileged to have met him a few times.  A very nice man.  A daily communicant at San Giovanni dei Fiorentini.  And very devoted to all things Catholic, including the cause for canonization of his friend, Venerable Pius XII.  His magazine, 30 Giorni, was a favorite.  I will always remember the time I saw him at the Solemn Pontifical High Mass in the Extraordinary Form at St. Ivo, in downtown Rome.  Despite his venerable age, he knelt for Holy Communion.
