Pope Pius XII Inaugurates the Holy Year - Video from 1950. Solemn Mass in the Presence of a Greater Prelate - Madison, WI


Pope Pius XII Inaugurates the Holy Year - Video from 1950

The Holy Year presents a challenge to mankind, for never has the Church faced greater problems. Persecuted in the East, its priests driven underground, its prelates jailed, the Church’s authority opposes the materialistic atheist teachings of Communism. May the new year bring about a change in the hearts of men!”

On December 8, Fr. John Zuhlsdorf celebrated Mass for the feast of the Immaculate Conception in the presence of a Greater Prelate, His Excellency Robert Morlino, Bishop of Madison, Wisconsin. There was a very good turnout, and the bishop preached about true mercy. In addition to the propers of the day, the music included:
  • Missa secunda, Michael Haller (1840–1915)
  • Magnificat octavi toni, Ciro Grassi (1868–1952)
  • Ave Maria, Jacob Handl (1550–1591
Here are some photos of the Mass, taken by myself and Roland Scott. More photos and a video can be found at the facebook page of the Tridentine Mass Society of Madison.
