“You preach God through the beauty of your art forms.” – Bishop Buzon to Local Artists

  • February 22, 2022

In a conversation with local artists, Mr. Fred Orig and Mr. Dennis Valenciano on February 22, 2022, Bishop Patricio A. Buzon, SDB, DD reminds them of their role in promoting the universal language of beauty, which, according to him, is also an attribute of God.

Bishop Buzon shared that while priests preach on truth and goodness from the pulpit, artists do it by their art forms.

Borrowing the words of St. John Paul II, the Bishop also reminded artists of their unique role in allowing people to appreciate God through the “universals” like “goodness” and “truth” -- concepts which many may find hard to grasped, but with “beauty” in art, can now be easily understood and appreciated.

In observance of February as Arts’ Month, the Diocese of Bacolod, through the daily program Kwarenta, has invited artists to the DYAF Radio Station and the Bishop's House.
