Portrait of the Artist as a Young Catholic

I attended the second in the series of the Catholic Artists Society’s lectures on Saturday night. My favorite part was when Fr. Peter John Cameron, O.P. answered a question about “coming out of the closet as a Catholic artist” with: “What is a Catholic artist? I don’t even know what that means!”

The sweetest part of the night was when I ran into an older woman I had met at a CAS event this past summer. She’s an illustrator for children’s books about the pope and she even got to meet Benedict XVI and give him a copy of one of her books. She just sent him her latest book with a note in which she mentions meeting a young woman (yours truly) who shared the story of how moved she was by his visit to Yonkers in 2008.

Best day ever.
