Who is the future Pope being consecrated? Pius XI?
It's worthless the way they're consecrated today. And as impressive as staring at the wall.
Benedict XV consecrates bishop Eugenio Pacelli!
It is so wonderful to see the train from the choir cassock [falling to the bottom left from Benedict's alb] showing. Telling us of the nobility of the prelate!-Donnacha
Pope Benedict XV (1854-1922) consecrated Eugenio Pacelli (1876-1958; seated) in a beautiful ceremony on April 23, 1917.
The Consecrator is Pope Benedict XV. The newly consecrated Bishop is Eugenio Pacelli.
Errr-actually the consecration took place on May 13, 1917. The very day when Our Lady made her first appearance in Fatima, Portugal!Nice picture, though-what a beautiful face that Pope Benedict XV has!Barb in NY
