Keep making beauty, for this leads one toward God.
Pope Francis stressed this during this morning’s General Audience in St. Peter’s Square, as he thanked the Rony Roller Circus who performed for him during the Italian-language remarks.
After the performance, the circus performers, including dancers, clowns and contortionists, went up to the Pope, who gave them his blessing.
Reflecting on their festive performance, the Argentine Pope remarked:” They make beauty and beauty leads us to God. It’s a way to reach God.”
“Keep making beauty,” the Pope added, concluding: “Continue. It does good for all of us.”
