First Holy Communion


The Calling of the Artist

Ukrainian Seamstress Tailor Mary Grace Godfrey

The best things in life uplift us. I am not talking about elevators when we need to get to the top floor, (although that is nice). Rather I am talking about lifting our spirits as we go about our day-to-day activities. This is the role of the artist, who “give us enthusiasm to do our work” as St. John Paul II said in his famous Letter to Artists.
