My ordinary, Archbishop Donald Wuerl, has a fascinating mini-series now available on CatholicTV. Called the “Gospel in Mosaic,” the miniseries focuses on the Rosary using the mosaics of the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception here in DC. Archbishop Wuerl is a well-regarded catechist, and he understands the importance artwork has played throughout Church history in the catechisis of the faithful.
I love going to the Shrine with my kids – each time we seem to find some new mosaic or other artwork that can be used to teach my children (and myself) about the faith. If you are ever in DC, you need to make sure to visit. If you go between November 20, 2008 and November 20, 2009, you can receive a plenary indulgence in honor of the Shrine’s 50th anniversary!
