What I find interesting about the exhibition, is how tied to the the reformation and counter reformation the English Church is. In those days Salvation was a life and death matter. I wish in our easy times that we find ourselves in today, we (Catholics lay and clerical) would get a little more serious and proactive about Sacramental evangelisation. St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church is absolutely stunning, is it not?

One more thing. Imagine what a Catholic English Monarchy would mean to the Church and England.
