A tribute to John Paul II's "Letter to Artists", as read by students at John Paul the Great Catholic University. This video was posted in April 2014, to commemorate his canonization to sainthood, and as a gift to Christian artists throughout the world. Many of the students reading are film, gaming, or acting students who have taken up the Pope's invitation to pursue the arts.

On Easter Sunday, April 4, 1999, Pope John Paul II wrote an open letter to all artists -- both Christian and secular -- reminding them of their vocation to Beauty. He urged them not to waste their artistic talent but to develop it, and to put it at the service of humanity as an authentic vehicle of culture.

Please note: This is merely a 3-minute summary of a rich, 6,000 word letter. Not all lines spoken are direct quotes, and some are paraphrased, inferred, or rearranged, while still retaining the message of the original letter.
