Walking Among the Artists

What a day I had today!  I took myself to Simi Valley to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library.  While I was there, I saw an exhibit from Vatican City in Rome.

The Vatican is where the pope lives.  The pope is the most important Catholic clergyman.

The most special church is also in Vatican City: St. Peter’s Basilica.  That church is special because St. Peter was buried there.

St. Peter was one of the two most important followers of Jesus. The other was St. Paul.

You aren’t Catholic so you probably don’t see these men as saints.  But Catholics of the world do and it’s basic knowledge. You might already know this from your history classes.

Anyway, the art was so breathtaking! Seeing the art of Giotto, Raphael, Micheangelo and Bernini up close was a dream come true.  Now,  I want to go to Italy next summer.  Until then, I’ll just have to make due with seeing exhibits like this and talking to angels like you… Check it out!  The exhibit is here until the end of August.
