Corpus Christi in the Vendee Anno Domini 1960 June 11, 2012

The Vendee was the region of France that most consistently upheld the Faith and opposed the horrific, even satanic French Revolution.  That faith was still vibrant in the year of Our lord 1960, when this film was made:

Today, some figures in the chanceries of the Vendee are horrified that Bishop Alain Castet ordained several FSSP priests to the diaconate.  They speak of the “integrists,” those who hold to a traditional belief in the Faith, with the greatest possible disdain. I pray that disdain does not represent the faith of the majority of that region of France which has traditionally been so loyal to our Holy Mother the Church.
