The Nativity Domenico Bigordi, called Ghirlandaio 1492. Preview of Day 8’s Meditations

In his new book, Fr. Mark Haydu traces the role of angels in both Scripture and sacred art throughout the ages. Meditations on Vatican Art: Angels, like his award-winning first book, offers beautiful artwork, richly depicting angels in biblical scenes ranging from serene to dramatic. These works are united with meditations that examine the art through the lens of Scripture, allowing deeper, more meaningful contemplation of God’s love. Readers will enjoy the art reproduced on the 216 pages of this 10 in. x 10 in. hardbound book and can also use it for prayer, group or individual studies and retreats, or any time they are in need of inspiration or assurance that God did indeed send his angels to guard and lead us to  him.

See sample pages from his lovely book and learn more about what art says in the language of the angels. The chapters include beautifully rendered artworks as well as guidance for prayer and reflection. See the preview here.

Here’s a full listing for the stops on Fr. Mark’s 2014 Book Tour of the US along which he leading presentations and book signings of his newest publication: Meditations on Vatican Art: Angels
