I wished to wax poetic about St. John Paul II’s Letter to Artists, stories, the artistic vocation, etc… to begin this blog. Then I came across this beautiful tribute by students of John Paul the Great Catholic University, and realized nothing I could write would hold a candle to it. It captures all my favorite parts of the letter, everything I love about artists of all persuasions and their crafts, the wonder that is in the (not-so-simple) act of creating. Perhaps one day we will delve into the letter more deeply together, but for now just watch and listen. I hope you will stick around and join me in searching for wonder, truth, goodness, and beauty in all their many forms. Welcome to my blog. St. John Paul the II, pray for us.
