Beauty ever ancient and ever new

Sarah de Nordwall, whom I had the great pleasure of meeting earlier this month, sends this gorgeous versification of St. Augustine’s commentary on Psalm 44:3, which she in turn received from an Augustinian monk. Augustine interprets the Psalm as describing Christ:

He is beautiful in heaven;

beautiful on earth;

beautiful in the womb;

beautiful in his parent’s arms;

beautiful in his miracles;

beautiful under the scourge;

beautiful when inviting to life … beautiful when laying down his life;

beautiful in taking it up again;

beautiful on the cross;

beautiful in the sepulcher;

beautiful in heaven.
