No Van Gogh . . .
An interesting article from summer 2011 -- the Maria Stein Center of the Society of the Precious Blood was examining a list of art work to be insured, with rumors of a Van Gogh on the premises. (Not impossible, given the order's connections in Europe.) Nothing that valuable turned up, but they are evaluating their collection of religious artwork for restoration. Works by Fr. Paulinus Trost are included; Fr. Trost did murals in several area churches, such as Sorrowful Mother Shrine and St. Peter in Alvada. You can read the article HERE.
