Arrival from the La Grand Hotel...

Knowing the Archduke to have been born in 1912, I was delighted to see him as he jumped up out of the car and with his narrow cane darted like a scooter up the stairs of Rome's Jesuit Univeristy while smiling and chatting with anyone.

Longevity is a gift even spoken of in scripture. God save the Emperor and long may he reign/live.

We might speak this of his father, Emperor Karl I:

"I have loved justice and hated iniquity; therefore I die in exile.”

Pope St. Gregory VII (11th cent.)
