Cardinal Sean O’Malley is continuing his little travel-blog of his pilgrimage to Rome, Turkey and Russia. He’s seeing everything, and the pictures — as you can tell below — really capture the wonder of his journey.

Visit the good cardinal’s blog for much, much more, including some of his remarks delivered when visiting one of the great shrines of Constantinople. And a tip of the mitre has to go to his gifted photographer, Gregory Tracy, of the Boston Pilot, whose keen and sensitive eye doesn’t miss a thing. The pictures are a pleasure to behold.
