My guest today is an expert in helping people to “See the sacred,” She is Jill Alexy, who works with the Vatican Patron of the Arts, where she regularly takes people not only through the artistic treasures of the Vatican, but those scattered all throughout Rome and across Europe. She has launched a new initiative called “Seeing the Sacred,” that brings some of those treasures to you, where you are, while also teaching you and guiding you towards a more profound encounter with God through beauty.
