Beauty Does Good to the Soul, Says Pope

Tells Circus Performers They Are ‘Champions of Beauty’

Pope Francis today affirmed that beauty brings us close to God, as he thanked circus performers who did a show at this morning’s general audience.

The Pope told the performers they are “champions of beauty.”

“You make beauty and beauty does good to the soul,” he said. “Beauty brings us close to God.”

But the Holy Father acknowledged that behind the “show of beauty” there are “many hours of training” and he thanked them for this.

“Go forward, continue, thank you!”
