Images of historic Papal moments, now on YouTube

So now with a simple click of a mouse, one can go back to 1964 and see a private audience of Pope Paul VI, and even see the Pope greeting John Kennedy in 1963 when he was president. Images of John XXIII and the Second Vatican Council are also online. The beatification ceremony of Pope Innocent XI back in 1956 is also an option. Other unique images like these can also be seen. They include 70 year old footage of the Swiss Guards and their military marches. There's also the arrival of the Vatican's steam train back in 1932. This original initiative will help the new digital generation to stay in tune with key moments in history, by just logging onto the web. ODF/KLH Cinecittà Luce Institute ;- -VM ;PR
