Prayer For Artists

Prayer for Artists
Blessed John Paul, as a man with many personal artistic gifts, you understood the artists heart.  In your letter to artists, you involved all artist to feel themselves united in a particular way to the Father’s creativity.  You challenged artists to see their gifts as signs of a creative vocation that has been entrusted to them.  May all artists find joy in putting their creative gifts at the service of their neighbor in expressing the wonder and mystery of God, present even in the darkest aspects of human experience.  May the face of Christ, the icon that makes visible the beauty and mercy of God, inspire the creative work of all  people of faith.  Amen.

The members of the troop must treat each other like one's very own blood. More than that, to work on which they were sent for by the master. These squires will be to continue the task anointed them, for the people.

War pictures teach profound lessons in life. It is not only about the use of weapons, a taste of brutality, cannibalism, or crucifying a soldier, but it is laying into the present time, something that happened in the past.

War films connote history, culture, and evolution. It proves how men fight for territories and how they could become saints or sinners. Men could be self-serving and greedy, or they could be respectable lea…
