Pius XIII appears and so do his beautiful blue-eyes... and this soft, round mouth. A dazzling image, so dazzling it blinds people. In other words, a powerful, an evocative image, not unlike that of Christ. But Pius XIII doesn't merely dazzle, he offers reassurance as well. With a magnificent speech, full of quotations in Latin, it tells them that they, the faithful, must not be afraid. And how could they be afraid, with a Pope as handsome and reassuring as Christ?
