FOR THE FEAST OF THE CHAIR OF SAINT PETER

THIS WAS DURING THE WAR, 1942! IT MUST HAVE GIVEN HOPE TO THE ROMANS OF THE TRIUMPHALISM OF THE CHURCH OVER EVIL:

The Holy Father, a dramatic speaker, speaks off the cuff, taking the MC by surprise, at the end of the Mass!

Another pope of great humility and intelligence much like Pope Benedict. A man who should be canonized but because of a misplaced desire to please those liberals outside the Church and the liberals within he never will be officially a saint. But very soon we will have Pope St. John XXIII because someone has personally decided to do it without following centuries old procedure, just because he can.

This was a Mass to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Pius XII's episcopal consecration. It was a pontifical Low Mass, and it is a pity that Benedict XVI didn't celebrate it at least once - unlike the papal High Mass it doesn't require the elaborate court ceremonial which would be difficult to resurrect nowadays.
