2017-08-04 Vatican Radio

(Vatican Radio)  Pope Francis has released a video message accompanying his monthly prayer intention for August.

This month’s intention is for artists: "That artists of our time, though their creativity, may help us discover the beauty of creation."

The text of the video message reads:

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, though their creativity, may help us discover the beauty of creation.

The Pope's Worldwide Prayer Network of the Apostleship of Prayer developed the "Pope Video" initiative to assist in the worldwide dissemination of monthly intentions of the Holy Father in relation to the challenges facing humanity.
