Dogma of the Assumption


Here is something I found that many, many of you will just enjoy! It is a short (4 mins) clip of when Pius XII is declaring the dogma of the Assumption. The quality of the video is not the best, but you can see some things AND you can hear everything, especially the last paragraph of the declaration of the dogma IN LATIN!!! Enjoy!


At the beginning, the image of our Lady under the title of Salus Pópuli Románi is carried in procession. About 250,000 pilgrims show up for this unique event and about 600 bishops/archbishops. Cardinal Tisserant is the one who solemnely (and officially) asks the Pope (during the ceremonies) to proclaim the Dogma of the Assumption.

If only we had a video clip of the declarati0n of the Immaculate Conception......
