What is the relationship between the architect Gaudí and mercy?

2016-03-11

The "architect of God” is getting closer to Sainthood. Antonio Gaudi could go from "servant of God” to "venerable” in a few months.

"The work of the positio is finished, if successful, the relator will oversee this and present it to people that will evaluate it if appropriate to the congregation; such as historians and theologians...”

Like medieval cathedrals, authentic Bibles in stone, the architecture of Gaudí is sculpted like a huge catechism where teaching is not limited to decoration. Therefore, on the occasion of the Jubilee of Mercy, this new exhibition speaks of mercy in the designs of the architect. For example, in the Sagrada Familia, you can find samples of tenderness and mercy in the Nativity scene.

President, Association for the Beatification of Antoni Gaudí
"Gaudí tenderly worked on that sculpture and created it this way, so that the Virgin presents the Child, with the father, protecting them from behind. These are specific details that can help pilgrims throughout their journey of mercy in a real substantial way.”

The exhibition, is offered in four languages. To get the most out the experience, one should first enjoy it in Spain, then come to Italy and Latin America. In regards to talent, Benedict XVI defined him as a "brilliant architect and consistent Christian.” His talent continues to cross borders and speaks for itself, in the hearts of thousands of people.

"That beauty that we see when we step inside the Sagrada Familia helps people to reinforce their faith. Some of them cry when they see this breathtaking work of divinity.”

Construction for Sagrada Familia began in 1882. It is estimated that the towers and most of the basilicas structure is to be completed by 2026, marking the centennial of Gaudi's death.
