Art & Beauty

Give to the Lord the glory due His name; bring an offering, and come before Him.

Oh, worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness!

1 Chronicles 16:29

"Authentic beauty... unlocks the yearning of the human heart,
the profound desire to know, to love, to go towards the Other, to reach for the Beyond.
If we acknowledge that beauty touches us intimately,
that it wounds us, that it opens our eyes,
then we rediscover the joy of seeing,
of being able to grasp the profound meaning of our existence,
the Mystery of which we are part;
from this Mystery we can draw fullness, happiness,
the passion to engage with it every day."

- Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI (Address to Artists in the Sistine Chapel, 21 November 2009)

Here we will endeavor to explore art and beauty in light of our rich and vibrant Catholic faith and heritage. Over time we hope to add written pieces on artworks, poetry and the like. We may even add some lighter, comical works to aid our mission of evangelisation and preaching the Gospel in new and creative ways... Enjoy!
