FSSP Musical Rosary in Rome

This week, to celebrate the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, the Rome parish of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter hosted a musical rosary known as a Vestizione Musicale del Santo Rosario.

The event was sponsored by the Nando Peretti Foundation and the Association Pro Missa Romana. The rosary was prayed in Latin with interludes of seventeenth century instrumental music.
The guest of honor was the Prince and Grand Master of the Knights of Malta, His Most Eminent Highness Fra' Matthew Festing, seen in the photo.
