The two brothers are totally in tune as they dance to "Jerusalema."

Across the world there have been many posts on social media of people dancing to the popular song “Jerusalema” by South African musician and producer Master KG, or Kgaogelo Moagi. They have been a real treat during the pretty tough times many have been feeling this year. However, the latest post is really something special!

Start your week with a big smile — and maybe some inspiration to get outdoors and dance — by taking a look at these two friars, Francisco Serrano and Scott Peter, pulling off some nifty moves in their backyard. The joy of the brothers dancing in sync is really uplifting and contagious. And with the statue of the Virgin Mary watching on in the background, it makes the dance feel even more special.
