Mass and Conference for Empress Zita

Back in April - yeah, I know, but better late than never, right? - the Belgian foundation for the beatification and canonisation of Empress Zita organised a mass and conference in honour of the last Austro-Hungarian Empress. The mass at the Église Saint-Rombaut in Steenokkerzeel north-west of Brussels was celebrated by the Archbishop of Mechelen-Brussels, André-Joseph Léonard, and the lecture at the Château de Ham held by Jean Sévillia, a journalist who has published one of the most famous biographies of Empress Zita. Both events counted an array of Habsburgs among its guests, among them Archduchess Marie-Astrid, sister of Grand Duke Henri, and her oldest daughter, Archduchess Marie-Christine.
