Traditional Canonization Photos
#1
I am in the process of looking for any photos relating to traditional canonizations.  I have found plenty of images of the Canonization of St. Maria Goretti but nearly no other canonizations from before Pope John XXIII.

Do you know of any photographs from canonization ceremonies for any of the above mentioned saints?

Thanks

I googled for "Gemma Galgani canonization photos". Perhaps that pattern for other saints will work. I got a lot of photos on google.

She was canonised by Pope Pius X.

Ah, yes. I had googled for "canonizations by Pius X" but the second return was "Saints canonized by Pope Pius XII - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia" and it was right below the article on Pius X. Strange results.

It's not a photo, but at the end of the movie The Song of Bernadette, I believe there is actually some quick footage taken during her canonization in 1933.  There is also some footage available of Saint Maria Goretti's canonization in another film.

Here are some photos of the canonization of HH St. Pius X. This blog, though no longer active, has a treasure trove of images showcasing the Church's tradition.Do try to look for photos of the canonization of St. Charles Lwanga and the Ugandan Martyrs; they are simply glorious.

Now, does anyone know of any others for these saints or especially for other pre-Vatican II canonized saints?
