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

St. Aloysius Church, Olivia, MN

What can a parish of 480 families do? $1,000,000 restoration - video of this amazing church here!

It's yet more proof of what I always have thought - if you dream big, have a clear vision, and keep the ideal of beauty at the forefront... people will be willing to dream with you, and soon it will no longer be a dream.

Give people a vision of splendor, and they will sacrifice to bring it to life. Give people a vision of mediocrity and they... won't.
