This is a clip from an Italian film on his life preceeding the Papacy, hence the narration for the first half. Although the video quality is rather poor, it is still an interesting historical piece.
I love the habits of those nuns.
Today I had a visit from Fr Jonathan Martin, who is study Canon Law in Rome, he wanted a mention on the blog, incidently he looks strangely like Pius XII, hence the video. Other trivia about him, he lives in the same house as Fr John Zuhlsdorf and who I learnt today was taught the Viola da Gamba by Alison Crum who tried teach me, that is Fr Jonathon not Fr John.
