As Catholics, we celebrate and enjoy the physical senses. We approach God through the Sacraments, we deepen our prayer with sacramentals, and we gather to worship in beautiful sacred spaces. Our faith is supported by what we see and experience in mass, with “architecture, sculpture, paintings, icons, and stained glass lend[ing] an ambience that speaks of the mystery of God” (US Catholic Catechism for Adults 171). Sacred art, then, forms a vital aspect of our tradition—and it is newly accessible in Verbum 6!
The newly-catalogued Treasury of Sacred Art contains over 800 comprehensively tagged paintings and illustrations. Let Verbum accompany your faith journey and draw you closer to God. Watch the video below to see it in action!
