Another Picture of Bp. Charles Grafton, with the Orthodox

The "Fond du Lac Circus," with Bp. Grafton, and Sts. John of Chicago and Tikhon (Bellavin).

Thanks to Fr. Matthew for this pic.

St. John of Chicago (Kochurov) is the beardless sainted priest in the back row wearing a pectoral cross, third from the right. St. Tikhon (Bellavin) is the vested Orthodox bishop on the right. Also, standing on the far-left is Bp. Anthony Kozlowski of the Polish National Catholic Church, another communion that naturally belongs in the Western Rite Vicariate. (The PNCC holds to the Orthodox view of Original Sin and celebrates Mass without the filioque. Unfortunately, they, too, bought into grand visions of reunion with Rome, which have likewise proven elusive.)
