The Catholic Church has a long and glorious history of sacred art. From the earliest etchings of Christian symbols on the walls of the catacombs to the exuberant works of the Baroque era, from the shared patrimony of iconography that links East with West to the monastic revival of the nineteenth century that gave us the St. Benedict medal, Catholic art is astonishing in its variety and diversity of styles.
But for too many, Catholic art is viewed as something largely in the past. This collection emphatically says, "Not so!"
This bound volume of eighteen works of sacred art by Catholic artists will convince you that the great artistic tradition of the Church is alive and well. Each work in this collection is printed on an 8" x 10" detachable page, so that the work may be removed and easily framed in your home.

"In these pages, you will find sacred images created by nine contemporary artists who are continuing the Church's great tradition of sacred art. Through their work, they remind us that creating great Catholic art is not just a thing of the past. It is a thing of the present, an ongoing act of worship and evangelization, a continual witness to the God who is with us."
— Emily Stimpson Chapman, from the Foreword
