"Mission Statement of the Museum of Catholic Faith Culture and Art
The Online Museum of Catholic Faith, Culture, and Art is a universal, lay evangelical apostolate (ministry) founded during the pontificate of His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI.
The museum is respectful and committed to the magisterium of Roman Catholic Church.
The chief aim of the museum is to celebrate the majestic, long arc of this global church. Crucially, we endeavor to educate, inform, inspire and to foster appreciation among the billion-plus adherents who make-up the universal church (and all outside of it) of the spiritual heritage and salvific mission of this one, true, enfabled church.
We embark on this spiritual journey with reverence, joy- yes, with Counter-Reformation zeal-and humility. Herewith a collection of myriad subject matters (spiritual, doctrinal, civilizational, intellectual, historic), artistic exhibits, events, and annual spiritual gatherings that the museum will observe, highlight and present to the faithful:
Vatican city coverage Early Church Dialogues on doctrinal matters Celebrations of feast days, holy days, and other major religious Church in the middle ages Coverage of World Youth Day Church during the enlightenment Religious persecutions around the globe Exhibits concerning all religious orders within the church Church in the 20th Century Church in the 21st Century State of Catholic primary, secondary, and tertiary education Church in China Church during the French Revolution Church in the 19th Century The Old Faith in England Church during WWII Highlights of church charitable work Church in Asia Regular features on church leaders Lectures and exhibits on the development of the church from its early beginnings Church in India Features on various apostolates within the church Church in the Americas Full coverage of countless religious processions around Europe, the Americas, the Caribbean and elsewhere History of the Counter-Reformation Counter-Reformation saints and painters Church in East Africa State of the Universal Church Life of St. Lucy Life of St. Francis of Assisi Life of St. Phillip Neri Life of St. Charles Borremeo Life of St. Augustine Life of St.Agnes Life of St. Catherine of Sienna Life of The Doctors of the Church Life of the Popes Hagiographical Studies Iconographic Studies Intellectual Tradition Examination of Controversies and scandals Church teachings on justice, peace and charity Exhibits on Church Architecture: basilicas, cathedrals, oratories, other historical churches, shrines, monuments, and statuary Catholic life in the Antipodes Life of St. Pio The Cardinal Martyrology Study of Church Heresies Church during the Reformation The Crusades Church in the New World Inquisition Founders and Foundresses of religious orders Life of St. Teresa of Avila Eastern Rite Catholicism The Church in the Levant and the Middle East Dialogues on the Seven Sacraments Marian Statuary and Devotions Tradition of Catholic construction of hospitals and other houses of mercy Catholic intellectualism in the formation of Western Civilization Rome-The Eternal City"
