    Question: Can the Catholic fine arts images (like the one above on the visitation) be used for commercial purposes like in a Catholic Prayer Book to be sold?

    • Rodney, thank you for your interest. Unless otherwise noted, all of the photos posted on this site are my own. I am by no means a professional photographer, but I would be happy to discuss how you may use the images if you would like to include them in a prayer book. I will contact you directly by email soon. And thank you again for you interest in Reliquarian!
