I just loved seeing this woman’s genuine, love, happiness and heart beaming as it were 58 seconds into the clip; at such a monumental and hopeful event for the world, at a time that in most respects was so different than the one we now occupy; so obviously!
Much humanity seems to have waned and been lost in the shuffle of modern secular materialism and focus on Self; not serving others or even one’s country!
Rather sad to honestly reflect now, but, I also see the hope that was so radiant back then is alive, because no matter what this at times desperate tumultuous world is doing, our Lord Jesus Christ lives with the Father and our beloved Holy Mother Mary; He reigns above wanting as many of us here to join them for eternity!
God bless the world that we your children are caught up in, and pray for us Holy Virgin Mother Mary that we can make it there to the Promised Land in God’s heavenly kingdom; I ask this in our Savior’s holy name of Jesus! Amen.
Brother in Christ Jesus,
Lawrence Morra III
In 1950 my late pastor, Msgr. Schuler, was in Rome on a Fulbright working on the manuscripts of Giovanni Maria Nanino, the successor of Palestrina for the Sistine Chapel. He had great stories about being a priest in Rome in that Holy Year and, specifically, of the Proclamation of the Dogma of the Assumption.
It was a different world. Think about it: the war had ended just 5 years before.
