This one, blew me away, both for the visual presentation, the use of Vivaldi’s Et in terrra pax hominimus, from the “Gloria” and most particularly due to the straightfowardness and humility of the scientist, Alexander Tsiaras, of The Visible Human Project, who says without fuss or fervor, “these are mathematical models beyond our human comprehension. . .it’s mystery; it’s magic; it’s divinity.

    Beautiful! Brilliant! Perfect focusing agent for my Sunday worship of Christ the King!

    I shared this with my mother and she too thought it was gorgeous. Blessed be God that technology is finally revealing more of God’s great genius.

    Some of those images were literally breathtaking.

    Thank you, Anchoress Elizabeth. When I sang the Gloria at 2 masses today, I had much more to give glory for.
