Pastoral Constitution on the Church in the Modern World (Gaudium et Spes)
The Second Vatican Council did not hesitate on this point and its guidelines call for its permanent implementation 'Every effort should be made, therefore, to make artists feel that they are understood by the Church in their artistic work and to encourage them, while enjoying a reasonable standard of freedom, to enter into happier relations with the Christian community. New art forms adapted to our time and in keeping with the characteristics of different nations and regions should be acknowledged by the Church. They may also be brought into the sanctuary whenever they raise the mind up to God with suitable forms of expression and in conformity with liturgical requirements (Gaudium et Spes, 62,4).
