Nuns Pray Outside of San Tommaso da Villanova Church

On August 15, 2009, the Assumption, these nuns prayed outside of San Tommaso da Villanova church as Pope Benedict XVI celebrated the Holy Mass for the Assumption. It is wonderful to see these nuns wearing the habit of their order as well as praying the Most Holy Rosary.

They belong to the fransicans of the immaculata. The same order that are the caretakers of the Shrine to OL of Guadalupe in LaCrosse, WI. They have said they have a "predeliction" for the Extraordinary Form.
