Latest Message from the Holy Father

"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." - Pope Francis (August 2017)
