Performers from the Golden Circus gave a show at Paul VI hall this morning during Pope Francis' general audience. The pope praised the performers' efforts.
"To think is the language of the mind; to love is the language of the heart; to do is the language of the hands. And all these three languages unite to make the harmony of the person. And there is beauty there... So often we forget beauty! Humanity thinks, feels, does but today it has great need of beauty."
