Vatican art exhibit is a challenge to secularism, archbishop explains

Catholic World News - February 05, 2013

A new art exhibition opening at the Vatican on February 6 can be seen as a response to “a general feeling of fatigue and indifference that even affects our faith,” Archbishop Rino Fisichella told reporters at a February 5 press conference in Rome.

The exhibit, entitled “The Path of Peter,” is a collection of works drawn from several different countries, from time periods ranging from the 4th century to the present. The theme of the works, collected for the Year of Faith, is the faith of St. Peter.

“Peter is the image of humanity that seeks and that finds and that, after having found, follows,” said Archbishop Fisichella, the president of the Pontifical Council for the New Evangelization. He said that exhibition is designed as “a challenge to recognize the necessity of believing as a response to the question of meaning that life poses.”

The exhibition, housed in the Castel Sant’Angelo, will be on display through May 1.
