Rotten hierarchy, great art

Posted by Charles II on February 25, 2013

Despite the seamy authoritarian side of the Catholic Church that was exposed by the sex abuse scandal, there is a lot to love about the Church. Its art represents extraordinary human spiritual exploration.

Our friend Brother John has been doing a pilgrimage to the holy sites of Italy. He has produced a terrific set of photos and posted them online:

Rome

The Vatican

The Vatican Museum

There are more photos and commentary on his site.
