500th Anniversary of Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel Ceiling

Happy Halloween to all the followers of Gotta Sing Gotta Pray.

Today marks the 500th anniversary of the celebration of the completion of the work of Michelangelo on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. Pope Julius II, who commissioned Michelangelo's work, celebrated Vespers in the chapel 500 years ago today, on October 31, 1512. Pope Benedict XVI will mark the anniversary by celebrating Vespers this evening in the Sistine Chapel.

Please take some time to mark the anniversary yourself by spending some virtual time in this amazing space.

Gotta sing. Gotta pray.
