Acknowledgments

We appreciate the contributions of all those who made this 2022 Religious Art Calendar possible, including Jordan Avery and the Vatican Apostolic Library.
Mrs. Mary L. Paluch Rafferty and the J.S. Paluch Company gratefully acknowledge the original gracious invitation from His Eminence Raffaele Cardinal Farina, SDB, then Cardinal Archivist and Librarian of the Holy Roman Church, and Msgr. Cesare Pasini, Prefect of the Vatican Apostolic Library, that led to the creation of a special series of calendars beginning in 2012.

We appreciate the ongoing collaboration with His Eminence, Cardinal José Tolentino de Mendonça, the current Archivist and Librarian, and the generous assistance of Msgr. Cesare Pasini and Dr. Claudia Montuschi, who supervised the research of images presented in this calendar. We heartily extend grazie mille to Msgr. Laurence J.
