12 priests pose as models in calendar

It is an informative tool for tourists coming to Rome where twelve young priests pose for a yearbook flooded by habit austerity and spiritual morbidity.

They are not professional models but Italian priests and seminarians who have posed for a calendar to illustrate 2008’s months using the Vatican as a backdrop.

The only human twelve young people pose for a yearbook flooded by habit austerity and spiritual morbidity.

It is an informative tool for tourists coming to Rome.

For the fourth consecutive year, Piero Pazzi’s photographs in his priestly calendar still have successful effect on the market with a nearly 40.000 copies edition.

Pazzi himself, who was the creator of the idea, assures that it is an informative tool for visitors coming to Rome, providing general notions about Vatican State since its pages include information about the capital of the catholic religion accompanied with sensual members of the religious order.

For 2009’s edition there is an open invitation on the web for good-looking priests and seminarists who want to take part in the initiative.

You've got it wrong. These are not all priests. Perhaps very few are.

Are they available for sale in Ireland, or is there a link to purchase copies online? I always look for Catholic-themed calendars, but very often what I find are photos of churches, tall crosses, or the old paintings. It's nice to see someone providing a new twist, and doing it beautifully. Thanks for sharing news of this.
