The Vatican's Hottest REAL Priests Are On Display In 2014 'Roman Priest Calendar'

While photographer Piero Pazzi's "Roman Priest Calendar" isn't serving up the salaciousness of the Orthodox Priest calendar, it does have one thing going for it:

Pazzi assures us his priests are real!

And they are GORGEOUS. So what's got these sexy holy men stepping in front of Pazzi's lens?

According to The Local:

But the Venice-based photographer behind the calendar, Piero Pazzi, insists the portraits are purely intended to promote the Eternal City and inform visitors about the Vatican.

They are all genuine priests, usually snapped in Rome during Holy Week, he tells The Local. He also travels to Seville to capture clergymen during the Spanish city’s Holy Week procession.

“I meet most of them on the streets in Rome and ask to take their photos,” he says.

The priests do not supply their name but “most are happy to be photographed after I tell them the reason for the calendar,” adds Pazzi, who launched the calendar in 2003.

“I do the same in Seville. Yes, the men are good-looking, but it is just a product, a way for people to be better informed about the Vatican.”

Inform us, Pazzi!! Keep us informed all day, every day!!

You can order the calendar here, or if you happen to conveniently be strolling by the Vatican, drop off 10 Euros to one of the vendors and be on your merry way!

sprecato per fare il prete io lo avrei voluto come attore

UM I shall call BULLSHIT!!!



Its not the size of cassocks that counts!!!

If this can help with the image of the church than I am not opposed.  I just hope that is their true calling.

This calendar flaunts the integrity of the priesthood. As a former priest, I have no issues with their sexiness! I have issues with The GREED that makes these calendars!

Integrity?? Giving up your life to a mythology? Thats a cult and its insane, and sad. And then you talk of "greed" over a calandar? The Vatican is practically built with 24 karat gold so lets not talk "greed" when it comes to these photos

well .. by profession of faith, i am episcopalian .. but ..

going through my closet to find the old cassock, surplice etc.......

Priests are supposed to be celibate.  they cannot be "hot" by their nature.

Hotness, like beauty, is in the eyes of the beholder....not necessarily in the nature if the beheld!

Very well put!!


Well put.

I want to get on my knees!....and confess... 8)

Oh mylanta!!!


They're not real priests. The cassocks are the same in most of the shots. 

Why should that matter, how many cassock manufacturers are there? It stands to reason that they would order them from a handful of suppliers.

Sorry but have to disagree on one point. The cassocks ARE different. Look at the collar, there is different tab spacing on several of them. Mine has about a 2" gap for the tab.

Chile...I will take any ONE of 'em.....SHEESH!!!!  LAWD HELP MEH JESUSH!!!!!!

OMG they are so cute. I prefere the 2nd and the 3rd

The first priest is the spitting image of my boyfriend in college.

For realz.

I suddenly miss him.
