Habit watching atop the cobbles of Rome...


This photo comes to us from our personal favorite: the Augustinain Canons of Klosterneuburg (see their site here:
In fact, if you feel called to be a canon regular, to live in Europe and to be German-speaking, then consider this order and so enjoy this wicked habit of old...
You notice here the Austrian has donned the habit which has as a part of it a white ribbon which is a symbol to him and to the world of the rochet which he wears as a canon to pray the choral office, etc.

For those who read German, the particular canon pictured here, Dom Alipius, has a very good blog of his own, http://amroemsten.blogspot.com/
