I am a very active, practicing Catholic who has travelled extensively in Europe and lived many years in Rome. I find the shrine big but the art not great. The figures tend to be stiff and the decor gaudy. The art on the ceiling over the nave looks like paint by numbers. If big impresses you, you will love it. If you like holy card art you will love it. If you loved Notre Dame in Paris, or any of the major basilicas in Rome, or any cathedral in Spain or Italy or France, you might be disappointed. I would hate to think this is the best we can do in religious art in America today.
