For Artists: August 2017 Prayer intention of Pope Francis
We are all invited to join with Pope Francis and his worldwide prayer network in praying this month's intention: For Artists
Text of the August video:
'The arts give expression to the beauty of the faith and proclaim the Gospel message of the grandeur of God’s creation.
When we admire a work of art or a marvel of nature, we discover how everything speaks to us of Him and of His love.
That artists of our time, through their creativity, may help us discover the beauty of creation.'
