Investiture in the Monastic Habit, Benedictines in Italy

It has been too long since we have shown anything monastic oriented and this video which was recently published on Messainlatino.it reminded me of this fact. As I have argued on here many times, the monastic life and vocation is a crucial aspect not only of ecclesial life generally, but particularly for a new liturgical movement.

At any rate, the video in question shows the investiture of one of the brothers (Fra’ Giuseppe) on June 23rd in the monastic habit at the Benedictine Monastery of the Immaculate in in Villatalla in the diocese of Albenga-Imperia. Readers may recall that this monastery was founded by three monks formerly of the monastery of Le Barroux and exclusively celebrates the usus antiquior.
