Annuntio Vobis Gaudium Magnum …

Perhaps a useful hint to what will happen on – I think – Tuesday or Wednesday.

The words are as follows:

Annuntio vobis gaudium magnum:
Habemus Papam!
Eminentissimum ac reverendissimum Dominum,
Dominum [First Name] Sanctæ Romanæ Ecclesiæ Cardinalem [Last Name],
Qui sibi nomen imposuit [Papal Name].

I announce to you a great joy:
We have a Pope!
The most eminent and most reverend Lord,
Lord [First Name] Cardinal of the Holy Roman Church [Last Name],
Who takes for himself the name of [Papal Name].

Here below the video of the happy day when Pope Pius XII was elected.

  1. A pity that the cardinal protodeacons Latin is not correct. He should have said: “Qui sibi nomen imposuit Pii (tredecimi).”
