In Tribute: the Sacristiae Praefectus...


To be a sacristan is often a thankless job.

However, hats off to this guy who does nice work and always goes the extra mile.

Meet Giancarlo of the Holy Roman Church, the famous Roman sacristan of the FSSP in URBE. And he even survived the Rome Quake of '09!

Sei bravo, capo!

I believe that he was the one who led the angelus and rosary before the 6:30 low mass when I was visiting, he did a very fine job.

Usually in my parish, being a sacristan is a thankful job, but I got a lot of compliments on my Holy Week decorations. You can see pics at http://www.flickr.com/photos/wwfmike/

We have a new priest arriving in a couple in a week, so I'm kinda nervous as to what he will like. I heard he is 'real religious' so I'm hoping that means traditional.

He is one of the unsung heroes of the success story of SS. Trinità and we appreciate his work immensely

And an excellent latinist, too, besides planning and setting up the altars on feast days, and ferreting out all the hidden liturgical beauties of the Trinità.
All the Roman traddies - and the pilgrims - are grateful to him for his hard work and love of liturgy.

In fact, I believe the Angelus and Rosary is his idea.
