On April 12, 2014, Fr. Jason Smith LC gave a guided tour to a group of 50 people in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. He led spiritual reflections on five paintings of the permanent collection of the museum. The goal of the tour was to evangelize through art and also to offer a deep spiritual preparation for Holy Week. The tour was organized by Saint Patrick’s Cathedral Young Adults group.

This is not the first time such as event has taken place in the MET, since other Legionary priests and Regnum Christi members have led similar activities there.
