Highlights from CAS Annual Mass for Artists, 2012

Oculi omnium in te sperant, Domine: et tu das illis escam in tempore opportuno.V. Aperis tu manum tuam: et imples omne animal benedictione. 

The eyes of all look towards you in Hope, O Lord, and you give them their food in due season. V. You open your hand and fill every living thing with your blessing…

Gradual, Ps. 144:15-16 (26th Sunday in tempus per annum)

Please join us for the Society’s next event, an evening of recollection during Advent. Details to follow soon. 

The Catholic Artists Society was initiated in response to Pope Benedict XVI’s Address to Artists at the Sistine Chapel in November, 2009. Following the Holy Father’s call for artists to be “custodians of Beauty” and “heralds and witnesses of Hope for humanity” the Society seeks to encourage the ongoing artistic and spiritual development of artists and media professionals, so that their work may more perfectly reflect God’s glory, enriching and ennobling men and women, our society and our culture.
