POPE FRANCIS INVITES US TO DISCOVER THE BEAUTY OF CREATION

Pope Francis asks artists to “help everyone discover the beauty of creation.”

Submit your photo or video of nature that inspires joy. The view from your front door, a flower in the sidewalk, an awe-inspiring view from your travels . . . the more creative, the better!

Your post will be shared with our global audience. From August 1, the beginning of Pope Francis’s prayer intention for artists, through October 4, the end of the Season of Creation, we’ll be sharing and celebrating on this website and social media, and through email.

Your photo or video could inspire people around the world.

Jesus was able to invite others to be attentive to the beauty that there is in the world because he himself was in constant touch with nature, lending it an attention full of fondness and wonder. —Pope Francis (Laudato Si’, 97)
