Wartime Apostolic Delegate to the U.S.A. ...

Underneath the umbrella pines and cypresses of Rome is the crypt of San Clemente. There you will see this tomb.
Amleto Card. Cicognani was the Apostolic Delegate of the Holy See to the U.S. government for many, many years. During WWII he proved to be a great help to all in that capacity.
Everytime I walk by the old palace at 3339 Massachussets Ave. NW I think of him and his walks through that neighborhood back in the old days. May he rest in peace!
