I don’t know what this organ piece is, but it’s joyful, exuberant and energy-pumping.
Rise and shine, and get jiggy with the habits in Rome!
I watch you twitter. I watch you blog. I sometimes wonder if you ever sleep.

Just beautiful. I wish I knew the names of all the orders – I recognised a lot of them, but not all. I think I saw a Knight of Malta in there.
Being near Vatican City is wonderful for the mere reason of there being so many clergy about! I vacationed in Rome this year and it was very comforting to see so many habits and collars!
Loved it! I visited Rome last month, and loved seeing the habits and collars. Many of the places in the photos brought back wonderful memories, especially of Vatican City. Thank you for sharing this!

That was fun, but a significant amount of the vesture shown aren’t religious habits at all, but simply varieties of cassock (sometimes with cotta, surplice, or mozetta) with the associated headgear. The cassock remains, in theory at least, normative for clerical attire to this day! But how often do you actually see them?
Gee. I just knew somebody would say that they aren’t all habits. Come on! We know that. Obviously, the kids aren’t in Holy Orders, they are wearing “altar boy” outfits, and some of the adults are just wearing vestments. Can’t you just enjoy the video? You’re missing the point.
What a thrill, especially after just having read the Manhattan Declaration. WOW!
Reminds me of an old Catholic saying that there are three things about the church that even the pope doesn’t know: 1) What the Dominicans are thinking; 2) What the Jesuits are doing; and 3) How many different orders of religious men and women there are.
Glory to God! Nuns in REAL habits!

Glorious! Thanks for posting.
Very cool! Sounds like Buxtehude or one of his contemporaries.
