Rosary Radio is a Rosary Group.

The world is always in turmoil but today the most horrible, unthinkable things are happening all around it. For those of us who aren't in a war zone or worried about not having enough food to eat, our ordinary everyday lives can still be a challenge. What can we do to help? Prayer can be a source of help to some of us. To say the Rosary you need not be Catholic to join in. You don't have to own a set of Rosary beads. All you need is to prayer with us. ~Jan at Rosary Radio

Exhibit of Vatican Splendors at The Franklin Institute Philadelphia, PA

My family and I went to the Franklin Institute, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania  called, Vatican Splendors at The Franklin Institutethis weekend. 

Below are some of the photo we were able to take.

A little about the exhibit:

See more than 200 works of art and historically significant objects that together form a great mosaic of the history of the Roman Catholic Church and its impact on art, history, and culture. From the sights and sounds of the grand Basilica to a touchable cast of Saint John Paul II’s hand, embark on a journey through the ages of artistic expression and religious iconography.
It also provides insight into Emperor Constantine’s declaration in 312 A.D. that Christianity would be legal. As a result, Roman Christians no longer had to practice their faith in secret, and Christian art began to flourish.
