The Path of Peter

This year we Catholics are celebrating The Year of Faith. It is an invitation to Catholics to re-experience a conversion and to rediscover and renew our relationship with God and with the Church.

As part of this celebration an art exhibition, The Path of Peter was opened last Wednesday in Castel San Angelo in the Vatican. It brings together works from nine countries and from 5th to 20th centuries. Peter reminds us that faith is not the result of a rational process, nor merely some heritage that has been passed down to us. Peter is the image of humanity that seeks and that finds, and, after it finds, follows.

The exhibition continues until May.
