Lauren Pope, with writing from the Pope

Hey guess what.

What you say?

Did you know that the Pope (big hat, armored golf cart, lives in Rome) wrote a letter to you?

You didn't know?

it's here but...

there's writing about it here that makes a nice edit of it.

Even beyond its typically religious expressions, true art has a close affinity with the world of faith, so that, even in situations where culture and the Church are far apart, art remains a kind of bridge to religious experience.

I'm not saying that I completely agree with the letter to the details, but there are nice points. It's reassuring and validating to have the attention of someone called the "Heir of Christ" whether you ascribe to that or not.

lots to chew on,
and as a reminder, Nicki will be talking about her work this Friday at Augellos ( be there at 8am ) and be reading Amos for Sunday.

Be well
do good work
