Mamma mia......!

I'm still in an Italian mood and look what I found browsing on the Internet : photos from the new Vatican calendar. When I first saw these belli ragazzi, I thought, this can't be, surely it's some kind of post-mortem joke by Fellini. Ma no! Since 2005, Venetian photographer Piero Pazzi happily contributes to the fame of the Vatican and photographs some...hum...very handsome and sexy priests and seminarists indeed. The calendar is sold for the humble sum of 10€ and...you guessed right....is mainly bought by women and gay men, which is quite funny considering the Pope's declarations about homosexuality.


this is Mister (or should I say Padre) April


Mister May


Mister june


Mister november


and Mister December who in my humble opinion makes you really
wish for December to come soon !

I'm protestant so don't go to confession but honestly,
I wouldn't mind confessing my little sins to one of them !

Have a happy exciting week end !!

Lala Ema, you naughty girl! :-)
I'm delighted with the serious Padre with the straight brim hat. And the come hither expression on December's face...carefully placed hair and trim beard...interesting. Tell your Mr. M that it's just an infatuation...no need to worry!Thanks for the fun post! <3

The Clever Pup said...

ha ha HA. You're not serious are you? This is crazy stuff. Even the premise of such a thing flys in the face of the Vatican. They're beautiful

P. said...

This is HYSTERICAL. I'd become Catholic for Padre April.

This post lends itself to all kinds of naughty comments along the lines of robes and what's Father hiding underneath his 'sotana' :-)? All I hope, my castle, is that toncheri is not reading this post, or that he sends for his ordination form pronto :-D!

Have a nice weekend, you too.

Greetings from London.

I purchased four of these calendars last time I was in Venice- What a waste of some obviously gorgeous genes. Then I thought "but no- they are all gay" so it wouldn't matter. Maybe they are assigned the job of "lead us not into temptation"...their calling on behalf of the ever punishing Catholic tradition.

delphine said...

Hello from France! Er WOW! AMEN! or should I say AH MEN! Seriously I have no wish to be disrespectful, but they are tasty guys! What about the sin of Pride? Where can I buy the calendar?

David Engel said...

The Girl From Cherry Blossom Street said...

¡Dios mío!
You are missing Jan-Mar and July-Oct! ;-)

Eric Engel said...

Dear Lala...My brother ,David is a devoted follower of your blog and forwarded me the sexy (ironic) calender boys.And all I can say is ......Why all the robes? Couldn't they get rid of the cassocks and robes and soutains and what-not and just where a collar or some rosary beads or something else to verify their calling?

Anna said...

oh my God! It's so terrible how many great genetic code is wasted ;) Some of these guys are to handsom to live in celibacy. Oh, what's a pity! :P
Yeah, so now I look like horny teenager... ;)

Susana said...

vicki archer said...

These guys are gorgeous! I guess the Vatican is not so old fashioned after all - they know how to promote an image! xv

Merisi said...

I was giggling all the way down to December, wow! :-)))

I saw the 2010 edition already for sale last week in newspaper stands all over Rome (didn't check at the Vatican, darn! *g*).

Merisi said...

Thank you for writing about this movie! I saw billboards all over Rome plastered with the Vespa scene, but didn't have the time to go see it (what with "big nights" every night of my stay).

I have known a couple of Italian guys still living with la mamma. I am looking forward to go watch that movie!

l'air du temps said...

Linda Sue said...

Gillian said...

Well, bless me Father!!! Phew.
Not bad. Those are some handsome priests!!!

tangobaby said...

NO! These HAVE to be MODELS. No fair!

I would try to convert all of them to my religion... heh heh heh...

Scarlet said...

I think I just turned Catholic. ;)

Lavinia said...

Wow, what a view! I would like to know the location of the churches where these priest gentlemen could be found on Sunday morning, I bet the attendance figures are quite high.

Paula and Skip said...

Cant get enough of any of them. WOW. And is quite some twist that gays are buying these calendars too.

Ooh lala, Lala! How could these dreamy men possibly stay celibate? They must have women and gay men confessing the most amazing things to them... Oh to be a fly on the wall.

Christina said...

; ) I want one! A calendar, I mean. ; )
