Craftsmanship for Catholic culture...


Here we see the coat-of-arms of Blessed John XXIII (aka Bubbles) from perhaps circa 1959. Notice the craftsmanship, detail and to think it was likely all made by hand.
To get craftsmanship like this today, they say you have to look to India, where for example, the British Armed Forces have all their emblems made. Hope we can cultivate more craftsmen all over the world so as to reproduce some of these past treasures for the life of the Church today.
