Veritatis Splendor

"Keep your eyes fixed upon Jesus, who inspires and perfects our faith" --Hebrews 12:2

Pope Benedict XVI before our Lord

And only where God is seen does life truly begin. Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we know what life is. We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution.
Each of us is the result of a thought of God.
Each of us is willed,
each of us is loved,
each of us is necessary.
There is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the Gospel, by the encounter with Christ. There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him.
~Pope Benedict XVI, Homily April 24th, 2005

Now that's art!

If anyone ever asks me again why I have acquired a nervous twitch in response to most modern "navel gazing" art, I'm just going to show them this. If that doesn't explain myself, nothing I say can. Of course, nothing beats the actual experience of an Angelico masterpiece in person... my memory of Firenze and San Marco (scroll about halfway down) will be burned into my mind forever.

(And that's only the beginning of the cool stuff now up on one of the coolest sites on the planet - click and see!)

(H/T to the AmPap!)
