Requiescat in Pace
Pope Pius XII
Mar 2, 1876 – Oct 9, 1958
October 9, 2013, marks the 55th anniversary of the death of the last known true Pope, His Holiness Pius XII, born Eugenio Pacelli (reigned 1939-1958). To honor and remember him, we are sharing the video below of a broadcast clip shown in 1958 at the passing of the Supreme Pontiff.
When Pius XII died, the Novus Ordo Religion was as yet unknown, for it would not come into existence until a few weeks later, at the election of the first Modernist Antipope, John XXIII (Angelo Roncalli). What a blessed time it was, when no one — no one! — who called himself a member of the Catholic Church, knew anything yet of “Catholic” ecumenism, a New Mass, interreligious dialogue, the abominable Second Vatican Council, religious liberty, exaggerated notions of “human dignity,” liturgical dancing, apostate New Age “eco” nuns, gay priests, and so forth.
Reflect on this for a bit. A mere 55 years ago, these things were wholly unknown and most certainly not connected with the name of “Catholic.” What’s 55 years compared to the Church’s own 2,000-year history?
