I've long wanted to explore George's roots in Catholicism. Louise was Catholic and, in an interview with a fan from George's fan club newsletter said that George and Pattie were both Catholic. Louise had George baptized when he was 1 month old.

Apparently the roots of Catholicism took root and bore fruit in George. He had a lovely statue of the Blessed Mother on his property. He also sang "Vatican Blues." We know his boyhood disillusionment with the hypocrisy he witnessed in people who claimed to be religious. I still would be very interested in George's later views on Catholicism.
With a love like that, you know you should be glad, yeah, yeah, yeah!-- Beatles, 1963

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind. -- George Harrison, 1966
