Rameaux Port Marly 1987 (Palm Sunday, Port Marly, France 1987)
THIS is how you deal with a closed and locked Church! Start at 26.00 minutes to watch the wall come down.
On Palm Sunday (Dimanche des Rameaux) thirty-four years ago, having been locked out of their church because they were a Traditional Latin Mass parish, the parishioners at Port Marly gathered, Mass was celebrated outside in front of the church, and then to strains of “Christus Vincit” the men used a battering ram to bust through a wall and gain entrance to their church.
