Pope John Paul II



LETTER OF HIS HOLINESS POPE JOHN PAUL II  TO ARTISTS -  1999




"To all who are passionately dedicated to the search for new "epiphanies"  of beauty so that through their creative work as artists they may offer these as gifts to the world."




"Artists of the world, may your many different paths all lead to that infinite Ocean of beauty where wonder becomes awe, exhilaration, unspeakable joy.




"And may your art help to affirm that true beauty which, as a glimmer of the Spirit of God, will transfigure matter, opening the human soul to the sense of the eternal."





A special thanks to:

"Who Is My Neighbor? Conference & Art Exhibit" (Art - Faith - Community) (Neighbor)

Held at the Catholic Information Center (Catholic) - Grand Rapids, Michigan  April 25 - 26, 2014.
