Instruction of the Church on Sacred Art Before Vatican II Cardinal Giuseppe Pizzardo. To give our readers more criteria to evaluate the consequences of Vatican II in art, today TIA is posting an instruction on Sacred Art dated J , issued by the Supreme Congregation of the Holy Office and signed by its Secretary, Card. Joseph Pizzardo.   Rami Shapiro, a renowned teacher of spirituality across faith traditions, is an award-winning storyteller, poet and essayist.

  Sacred art is any work of art that pertains to things divine and is used in a public or private context for evangelization, contemplation, or education in the Faith. By reflecting on the teachings of Christ—Who is the Way, the Truth, the Life, and the Light of the world—a set of criteria may be determined to identify sacred art. After the Introduction the book is divided into four principal parts: Part Oneoutlines the relationship between the Church which worships and the churches built to house the worship of the Church. Part Twoexplains the process to be considered when building a new church or when making changes to, or reordering, an existing one.

  Jesus isn’t hiring Peter—a fisherman by trade—as a subcontractor to erect a building with a steeple. He only notes Peter’s devotion, and tells him to continue the Kingdom work he’d already begun. He is to steward the people of God: no building campaign, no weekly services. How the Church Is Built. People are the building blocks.

Rami Shapiro is available to speak on the following topics/5(13).

Can. In the building and repair of churches, the principles and norms of the liturgy and of sacred art are to be observed, after the advice of experts has been taken into account.

Can. After construction has been completed properly, a new church is to be dedicated or at least blessed as soon as possible; the laws of the sacred liturgy are to be observed. This just as I read of Duncan Stroik's new book collecting together 23 essays on church architecture: "The Church Building as a Sacred Place." You can read of it or order it here.

My own preference in style rather leans towards the : Fr Simon Henry. Further on, No. speaks of the use of sacred images: "In the earthly Liturgy, the Church participates, by a foretaste, in that heavenly Liturgy which is celebrated in the holy city of Jerusalem toward which she journeys as a pilgrim, and where Christ is sitting at the right hand of God; and by venerating the memory of the Saints, she hopes.

DIRECTIVES ON FORMATION IN RELIGIOUS INSTITUTES in God (cf. ), which is the source and stimulus of love of the neighbor, for the salvation of the world and the building up the Church."(56) This love, which orders and vivifies the very practice of the evangelical counsels, is poured out in hearts through the Spirit of God, which is a.

Because the church is a visible building, it stands as a special sign of the pilgrim Church on earth and reflects the Church dwelling in heaven.

Remarkable.” ―Thomas Ryan, CSP, author, Soul Fire: Accessing Your Creativity and The Sacred Art of Fasting: Preparing to Practice/5(11). Borromeo’s directives regarding a church’s exterior doors and windows had both practical and symbolic purposes.

He states that a church’s front facade should have an odd number of doors, and if possible reflect the church’s number of “naves” [nave and aisles].

In examining the specific directives of the Church when it comes to art, we should remember that art, like the music and architecture, is not just something we add to our houses of worship.

The three sacred arts (art, architecture, music) form an integrated whole that brings Beauty into our liturgy. The Church gives the artist or craftsman a great deal of freedom in creating work for our liturgical spaces. But we should be mindful when creating, or commissioning these works, of the purpose of sacred art.

“Genuine sacred art draws man to adoration, to prayer, and to the love of God, Creator and Savior, the Holy One and Sanctifier.”. This spiritual beauty of God is reflected in the most holy Virgin Mother of God, the angels, and saints.

All churches should be dedicated or at least blessed. Cathedrals and parish churches, however, are to be dedicated with a solemn rite. For the proper construction, restoration, and arrangement of sacred buildings, all those involved should consult the diocesan commission for the Sacred Liturgy and sacred art.

The church building is a prime aid, or a prime hindrance, to the building up of the Body of Christ.

And what the building says so often shouts something entirely contrary to all that we are seeking to express through the liturgy. And the building will always win—unless and until we can make it say something else.". Luther was open to the use of sacred art in the church as long at it was not distracting and Calvin spoke of art as a gift of God.
