A Gorgeous Work of Art

I have seen much 0f Fra Angelico's work in Italy and have a photo collection of his works, but this is a new one for me and I absolutely love it.

St. Mark's in Peoria, IL has a series of large murals on the church walls duplicating the work of 15th century Italian artist Blessed Fra Angelico Giovanni. Bishop Daniel Jenky has declared St. Mark's as the Diocesan shrine to Fra Angelico. You can view beautiful photos of the church here.
I attended this church when I was a member of the diocese and the transformation was just unbelivable!
