Holy Rosary with the Pope – YouTube

Saturday, May 4th, 2013

Ave Maria!

On this first Saturday in May, Mary’s month, the Holy Father Pope Francis prays the Rosary at St Mary Major in Rome. Yes it is a long video but when else do you get a chance to say the Rosary with the pope on the first Saturday in May. Of course, it is all in Italian.

I have not yet watched the whole thing but I imagine that you can spot some grey-habitted friars of the Franciscans of the Immaculate. If you do, please leave a comment giving the time counter.

This past Corpus Christi the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate in Rome had the privilege of attending the Eucharistic  procession of our Holy Father.  The procession started at the basilica of St. John Lateran and finished at the basilica of St. Mary Major.  We hope you enjoy some of the highlights of our special evening, which includes audio from the Holy Mass celebrated beforehand by the Pope as well as audio of the Vatican choir which beautifully animated the procession and the Eucharistic benediction.  The video contains text in English and in Italian.

Ave Maria!

Here’s a glimpse of the procession that was held on the outskirts of Rome for the feast of “Holy Mary of Nazareth” parish, one of the parishes that our Franciscan Friars have care of here in Italy. We’ve added to the footage a few reflections from the book Devotion to Mary, written by our founder, Father Stefano M. Manelli, to add some depth and reflection to this short, catholic-culture film. Included are also some piano pieces played by Sister Maria Settima Manelli, a hymn or two from our Friars, and also some faint but beautiful hymns taken from the monastery of our contemplative Franciscan Sisters here in Italy at Città di Castello.

Ave Maria!

FiNews – Poor Clares of the Immaculate Vocations Video

FI News #34 – Italian vocation video of the Poor Clares of the Immaculate ( 5min) >>> Play

Ave Maria!

Here’s a video in Italian. It is a vocation video for the Clarisse dell’Immacolata (Poor Clares of the Immaculate) which is another order started by our founder Fr. Stefano Manelli. It is an order of Poor Clares that follows the Traccia with the Marian vow as do the Franciscans of the Immaculate. Currently they have four convents, all in Italy and have about sixty sisters and are fully contemplative as opposed to the FI sisters who are both active and contemplative. This slide-show video features their convent in Pastena in Lazio. We will probably make an English version of this but we thought we should just get this Italian version up straight away to add a little foreign language flair on AirMaria and to give some exposure to this blessed community.

Ave Maria!
