Description:
This home movie captures Shiner native Father Emil Wesselsky's trip to Israel, Rome and Vatican City in 1965. The film captures images of many historical Catholic churches and public sculptures, including the Church of the Beatitudes, the Basilica of the Annunciation, the Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls, and the Vatican. It also includes footage of Pope Paul VI and his cardinals at the reinstallation of Michelangelo's Pieta in St. Peter's Basilica (the piece had been on loan to the 1964 World's Fair in New York). Also included are various landscapes and waterways that the group passed in their travels.
