VATICAN CITY – Pope Francis thanked on Wednesday members of Cuba’s national circus for their acrobatic display at the General Audience at the Vatican and told the troupe to keep up their work bringing beauty to the world.
Around 20 athletes from Circo Cuba put on a spectacle in front of the thousands of faithful gathered for the weekly audience with the head of the Catholic Church, who himself participated by spinning a soccer ball on his finger.
“I would like to thank the artists from Circo Cuba. They bring beauty with their spectacle,” Francis said.
“Beauty brings us virtue and closer to God. Continue like that, offering beauty to everyone,” he added.
