Pius XII’s coronation

Today, March 12th, marks the seventy-seventh anniversary of the coronation of Pope Pius XII. At New Liturgical Movement, Gregory DiPippo posts an old Pathé newsreel of the moment of that good and holy pope’s coronation by the cardinal protodeacon, then Camillo Cardinal Caccia-Dominioni, the friend and protege of the great Papa Ratti. It’s only a few minutes, so give it a quick watch.
