We are six weeks away from the opening of Vatican Splendors, but advance tickets are available today. As Mrs. Reagan said about this once-in-a-lifetime exhibition, “Throughout my life, my husband had great affinity for the Catholic Church and as President of the United States, his relationship with the Vatican was very strong. He established a unique and very special friendship with Saint John Paul II. Remarkably, they shared similar personal backgrounds and together, they worked very hard – mostly in secret – to free the people of Poland and other captive nations from Communist rule. My husband would have been honored to know that his presidential library will be sharing this remarkable Vatican exhibition with the American people."
