New Documentary on Vatican Museums Highlights the Beauty of Catholicism
By Brian Williams
“It is vital that we return our focus to the things that cannot change, and to bring Christ again to the center. We must remember how to evangelize, and how to draw those seeking conversion into the depths of sacramental mystery…we must promote the Good, the True, and the Beautiful, raising up artisans and writers and musicians and architects and filmmakers who can reach confused souls not simply by preaching, but by showing them the wonders of creation and the possibility of fallen man, redeemed.”
With these words publisher Steve Skojec launched One Peter Five back on August 1 of this year. The Catholic Church has evangelized for centuries through art, recognizing the power of beauty to move hearts and win souls for Christ. Indeed, many of the greatest works of art in the history of Christendom reside in the Vatican.
This month marks the release of what promises to be an intriguing and visually dynamic new documentary on the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel. From the filmmakers website:
