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.
