Further there is nothing wrong with people giving their money to offer (to God) a beautiful place to worship Him in.

If you really feel that way though...that the Church needs to be selling off everything (and I assume you feel the same about the famous museums around the world) then I figure you have also sold of everything of value that you own in order to help the poor?

I know from personal experience that the Vatican is constantly divesting itself of works of art. My dear Uncle, who had many papal knighthoods bought several pieces over the years. One of them, a 15th century fresco, was left to me with it's papal provenance and certificates from the Vatican. People constantly leave things to the church. When they receive a better 'whatever' than the one currently in the collection, the lesser piece will be sold.

Just wanted to add . . . I believe the church as an institution on earth is really comprised of the people, and we really benefit from all it has. I so much enjoy being able to praise and give glory to God in these magnificent and beautiful buildings! there with my brothers and sisters . . . the rich, the middle class and the poor. They are there to serve us all . . .

Thank you for sharing this video, it so eloquently shows the "real value" of religious art, and the role it plays in the spiritual journey as instruments in the church to teach and to inspire. (not for sale please)
