PHOTOS: Time sure does fly, don’t it? And there’s no better way to keep track of it than with the 2013 Orthodox Calendar. According to its Facebook page, this is the first time young (alleged) Romanian Orthodox priests and monks have agreed to pose for a calendar. Whether they’re legit or not, we sing their praises: Halleloo!
The calendar also offers some insight into their monastic lives with cheeky descriptions heavy on the innuendo. Don’t delay, though: The first 1,000 calendars include a limited-edition Pussy Riot print promoting freedom of speech, unity and tolerance.
“Vladimir and Yulia are from Ukraine, where they are happy parents of 3 beautiful teenagers. Vitalis plays football and wants to be a doctor like his mother. Timothy dreams of reaching Hollywood and becoming an actor. Paris hopes to embrace the robe and become a priest like his dad.”
“Brotherly love has never been stronger. Jacob and Esau have been together their entire lives and always take care of one another.”
“Father Virgil lives in a small village in Eastern Europe. His parish is probably the smallest ever. Everyone knows one another and nobody has a bad word to say about him. He is so well-regarded that nobody minds helping him with his daily chores.”
“Father Nicolaï is talented—his artistic ability and prolific imagination have always served him and his church well.”
