    Awesome video. Except one thing. THEY WEREN’T MARCHING IN TIME WITH THE MUSIC.

    Really stressed me out.

  2. Liz says:

    Very cool. I enjoyed showing the kids.

  3. Jacques-Antoine Fierz says:

    Respect for the members of the GSP. You can’t immagine how the job is hard.
    W il Papa, W la Guardia!

  4. NBW says:

    Very cool!

  5. momoften says:

    Thanks Father, the boys LOVED it!!!

  6. Marcello says:

    A pity Paul VI suppressed the rest of the papal court–Noble Guard, Palatine Guard, Gendarmerie in Napoleonic dress uniforms, prince assistants at the throne, et al.–it was a riot of color for the eye!

  7. majuscule says:

    As a woman I have never had the desire to be a priest or be in the military…

    But I think being a Swiss Guard would have been cool!

  8. MattH says:

    My son loved it too.

    If the Noble Guard and Palantine Guard were reinstated, how about the Papal Zouaves?

  9. ghp95134 says:

    Yeah, that’s “just too cool for school” … but I couldn’t help drawing a parallel to this:
    “Oh we love …. the Old One”

    Mebbys we could pick up that chant for the Usus Antiquior?

  10. Diane at Te Deum Laudamus says:

    They have a Facebook page, and have uploaded other videos too. Love the pics they upload. http://www.facebook.com/gsp1506?ref=ts&fref=ts

  11. Marcello says:

    Yes, bring back the Zouaves! Totally cool uniforms too.

  12. Mariana says:

    Seriously cool. Let the forces of Mordor beware!

  13. Mariana says:

    The Facebook video Giuramento 2013 shows loads of aspects I haven’t seen before, like their training. I’m sure the above boys would love it!

  14. BigRed says:

    God’s Marines?


  15. Desertfalcon says:

    “Ditto” to Marcello’s comments above but great video. Those guys certainly have their work cut out for them with this pope. His holiness is going to give some of them a nervous breakdown.
