Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California).

“Paul VI continuously reached out to the artists, to all of them in fact he invited me to a private Christmas audience it was really special after the council closed.”

It was during that private audience that Paul VI blessed Mooney’s hands. In the years that followed his hands have crafted works of art from a sculpture installation at the Vatican Observatory at Castel Gandolfo to his Millennium sculpture in Malta and the rooftops of buildings in Los Angeles.

Mooney says he’s inspired by science and astronomy.

His work is always grand and always public.

“That’s the main thing to let people experience art without having to go into a museum and pay 2.50 or 5 euros to see art that’s a tax and people shouldn’t be taxed to see art it should be accessible.”

And reflect today’s culture. A culture he hopes will continue moving towards bridging the gap between the art world and the spiritual world.
