Are these priests F.S.S.P.?

Not all of them. I saw at the end there were 3 clerics present from the F.S.S.P. Laymen who are mostly students in Rome helped out at the altar...

What is truly ridiculous is that for a supposed exposition of the 'Baroque' in toto, the music is decidedly not baroque.

Come on, less adoration of style and more of Almighty God.

Nice pics though.
