The corpulent fellow in the red suit having his hand kissed is "His Eminence" Cardinal Jean-Pierre Ricard of Bordeaux, France.
Effusive praise and gratitude is being heaped on him by "traditional Catholics" because on June 13 he deigned to administer the sacrament of Confirmation to French children according to the old, pre-Vatican II rite. (See it here).
Cardinal Ricard is a follower of the Babylonian Talmud under the instruction of Rabbi Avi Weiss of New York.
In July 1989, Rabbi Weiss and six associates attacked the Carmelite Catholic nuns' convent in Auschwitz. Pope John Paul II subsequently expelled the nuns and closed the convent.
In March 2006 Cardinal Ricard underwent his submission to the Babylonian Talmud at Yeshivat Chovevei Torah, under the direction of Rabbi Weiss.
Cardinal Ricard removed his pectoral cross during his time at Yeshivat Chovevei.
Cardinal Ricard has never repudiated his submission to the Talmud or his allegiance to his nun-hunting rosh yeshiva, Rabbi Weiss.
This is the face of the papally-approved "return to tradition" -- the emerging, hybrid Babylonian Talmudic "Traditional" Catholicism.
