Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary in the Vatican Museums

Sacred art, by being true and beautiful, should evoke and glorify the mystery of God made visible in Christ, and lead to the adoration and love of God, the Creator and Savior, who is the surpassing, invisible Beauty of Truth and Love. The beauty of sacred art is always a fruit of a deeper knowledge and love of God in Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, Who is all beautiful.” – Pope Benedict XVI, March 19, 2011

In 2017,  Fr. Kevin Lixey, LC, left his role as Regnum Christi chaplain in Atlanta to take on a new mission as the International Director of the Patrons of the Arts of the Vatican Museum.
