"A [preacher] who does not love art, poetry, music and nature can be dangerous. Blindness and deafness toward the beautiful are not incidental; they necessarily are reflected in his theology." —Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger
Wow, even better the second time! (I snuck into the 4pm Mass yesterday, and was pleasantly surprised to hear it was you). A good way to start my Sunday. Take care.
