Thanks for posting this clip. Little did we know at the time that this was the funeral of traditional Catholicism as it had been known since Trent. Thank heaven for the invention of cinematic photography.

I saw this funeral on television as a girl of 14 yrs. As a result, I sent for books from the CTS, and started having instruction from a local priest.
I was persuaded by my parents not to take this big step yet and capitulated.
A closet Catholic for the next 49 years, I was finally received into the Church in July 2007, and feel that I am, at last, where I belong.
