Religion News Service was founded in 1934 to provide fair, balanced, non-sectarian news about religion to the secular and religious press.
In the old days, RNS had a staff of photographers who roamed the world in search of images that conveyed how faith was lived out.
Today, those images form a rich historical archive.
Each day we feature an “RNS archive image of the day” for our readers.
Enjoy, share, and comment!
