It is particularly heartening to see how you have been able to use art in promoting the Faith. This is a wonderful feat in itself but it is doubly blessed in that you also address the issue of the oneness of mankind through your art. I thank you for this great service you are accomplishing and pray for you. Please keep me informed of your continued activities."
