Rosa Mystica

October 1, 2020 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

The Illinois Patrons of the Arts in the Vatican Museums are thrilled to invite you to Rosa Mystica: A Journey of Renewal and Restoration.  This is a five-lecture program series that will take place over a 15-month period. Each lecture will showcase magnificent Marian art accompanied by artistic and spiritual commentary and an opportunity for Q & A.

Our first lecture, Mary: Art as a Carrier of Faith will continue the Illinois Patrons’ distinctive approach to its mission of restoring art in the Vatican Museums. We are more than art historians and admirers. We bring together art and faith.

Cardinal Blase Cupich will introduce the Rosa Mystica series and Father Louis Cameli and Dr. Rebecca Long will be presenters for this first lecture. Father Richard Fragomeni will present at the March 9, 2021 lecture.  Please see link below for the dates and topics of the entire program.

This five-lecture program begins in virtual format.  Attendance will be limited so please register as soon as possible.

“Rosa Mystica” continues, Thursday, December 8 at 6:30 p.m. Call 312.534.5351, Email
