Gospel in Mosaic explores the mysteries of the Rosary using the elaborate mosaics in America’s largest church, The Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.
During the show, Cardinal-designate Wuerl, who has a doctorate in theology, explains in detail all four sets of the mysteries of the Rosary.
This series, produced by CatholicTV, offers a unique look at Cardinal-designate Donald Wuerl. This unique Archbishop of Washington, D.C. was one of only 3 non-Cardinal’s permitted inside the conclave which selected Karol Wojtyla as Pope John Paul II.
Wuerl was ordained bishop on January 6, 1986 at St. Peter's Basilica in Rome, Italy by Pope John Paul II. Wuerl is no stranger to television. He hosted a television program, The Teaching of Christ, in 1990 and wrote an adult catechism with the same name.
Gospel in Mosaic also offers viewers a detailed look at the interior of the Basilica which houses an incredible 70 chapels honoring Mary.
The main seating area of the Basilica is surrounded by chapels which have images of well-known Marian apparitions such as Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico, Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, and many others. These chapels in the main seating area all contain beautiful mosaics which are rarely seen in the modern churches in the United States.
