The Pope Video 08-2017 – For artists – August 2017
The arts and nature express the beauty of creation and bring joy to the soul. Let us join the Pope in praying for artists, so that with their creativity, they continue showing us the greatness of God.
“The arts give expression to the beauty of the faith and proclaim the Gospel message of the grandeur of God’s creation.
When we admire a work of art or a marvel of nature, we discover how everything speaks to us of Him and of His love.
That artists of our time, through their creativity, may help us discover the beauty of creation.”
CANADA150 – The First Bishop of Toronto
It’s Canada’s 150th anniversary and for the next year, we Canadians are celebrating the sesquicentennial anniversary of Canadian Confederation.
You can’t talk about the Catholic Church’s contribution to Canada over the past 150 years without talking about the first Catholic Bishop of Toronto, Bishop Michael Power.
Archbishop Cardinal Thomas Collins takes a moment to talk to us at the crypt chapel underneath St. Michael’s Cathedral Basilica , about the legacy of this great man to Toronto and to Canadians, and why the Archdiocese of Toronto is working towards his beatification.
