See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains. - James 5:7

"Get your cape - we're leaving!"

The Heralds of the Gospel (shown) is an International Association of Pontifical Right, the first established by the Holy See in the third millennium, on the liturgical feast of the Chair of St. Peter, February 22nd, 2001.

They do not take vows but live in community and pretty much live as religious. They were founded in Brazil by Father John Scognamiglio Clá Dias.

Their habits are different, aren't they. Note the boots. My first impression was that they look a little theatrical.

Thanks to David for the photo.

    Must be fashion week at Abbey Roads! These habits are REALLY out there. The men look happy in the photo, which is good to see. Personally, I wouldn't be able to consider the Order BECAUSE of the habit. I couldn't wear it.

    Bl. Anna Maria looks a whole lot better than she did the other day, doesn't she? (Actually, I like the way she looks in the satin and bonnet. She looks like she went to sleep at the end of the 18th century.)

    Low class. I am researching them and they are a very big order and very strong.
