Leo XIII on YouTube


.
The oldest footage of a Pope.
.
Just think - St. Therese met this Pope nine years earlier, and she died one year after this was filmed.  The Holy Father died in 1903.

  1. Wow! Wonderful, Thank you so much for finding this. I think he blessed me! And didn't this Pope also write the Holy Michael Archangel prayer after Mass, one day?

  2. VERY cool!!! How ever did you find this? What an ethereal experience here--almost like watching an appartion. So cool to be getting his posthumous papal blessing, too.

  3. What a find. This must have been the Pope to whom she pleaded permission to enter Carmel...

    I just love this hat.
    A “saturno”, the sombrero affair above on the left, takes its name from the rings of the planet Saturn--- big news when they were first observed in the 16th Century by the astronomer Galileo (that was before his run-in with the Inquisition) also belongs to the Church tradition.
