Here he is at the Eucharistic Congress in Budapest. Excellent picture!


No comments needed!!!
Ordinations (wow!) - I am not sure where this took place, but according to a friend, it was somewhere in Spain after the Civil War

Some Cardinal receiving the galero - great cappa!

Novem diales for Pius XII - the Absolutions

To anger some defenders of the Novus Ordo, Paul VI receiving the Precious Blood the traditional way (for Popes)

To anger Novus Ordo-ers even more, Paul VI celebrating Mass the Traditional way

If you have 1 hour and 24 seconds and you enjoy watching clips of Pope Pius XII, then I recommend you watch this video: Pastor Angélicus (Click on link).

The video is about the life and pontificate of Pius XII - It is completely in Italian, but you get to see a lot of things that we do not get to see today.

Pastor of souls

"Nothing could better obstruct the confrontation of man with God than the notion that we 'go unto the altar of God' as we would go to a pleasant, relaxing social gathering. This is why the Latin mass with Gregorian chant, which raises us up to a sacred atmosphere, is vastly superior to a vernacular mass with popular songs, which leaves us in a profane, merely natural atmosphere."
-Dietrich von Hildebrand

"Dietrich von Hildebrand is the 20th century Doctor of the Church."
-Pope Pius XII
