I had the privilege of witnessing live the canonization of Martin of Porres (in 1962) by Pope John XXIII. A unique experience! In those days, beatifications and canonizations were still held inside the Saint Peter Basilica … I remember viewing the Holy Father on the sedia gestatoria coming down the main isle all the while hearing the trumpets blaring out the Papal march … a decorum that gave us all the shudders.

That is truly AWESOME (the only way the word should be used for things of God)!!!
I can hear and feel that most awe-inspiring spectacle – and so it should be Fr Jacques – we should be filled with awe and also inspired to raise our hearts and minds to things of God!
You are indeed blessed.
Knowing your age, I truly wonder how you can accept the rough and ready methods they use today?!
By Faith, Ana! Only Faith can make us go through this mad society, day after day.
