“It means we all need to play the oboe…”

Do yourself a favor and watch this talk by Father Peter Cameron, O.P. of Magnificat magazine.

“What converted the warriors? It was beauty…’Beauty is one of the rare things that do not lead to doubts about God.’”
“‘Whenever we encounter something attractive and desirable,’” says Pope Benedict ‘we are moved spontaneously and not by constraint. Truly nothing is more beautiful than to know Christ and to make him known to others.’”

“We have our own private ideas about reality and the way that life should be; defensive and hostile, until beauty breaks through, not just to woo us but to wound us, and we want to take beauty by the and hand see where it will lead us.”

Yeah, just watch it and share it. It’s truly wonderful. You will be very glad you took the time.

    That was excellent. When I saw how long it was, I had only intended to watch for a ten minutes or so, but I wound up watching the whole thing. He mentions at around the 35 minute mark a Fr. Richard Veras from Staten island. That’s my pastor! Fr. Veras is great. And Christ Cathedral does look magnificent. I was skeptical but it’s got a certain beauty.
