I have just read this article of a speech by Bishop Barron.
I don’t know who Bishop Barron is, but hell, every paragraph seemed to deal with such obvious defects in our modern society, I thought he really hits the nail on the head!
About beauty (the subject, really of my last two posts) –
“The objectively valuable and beautiful is not like that, ( something subjectively satisfying like, say, deep-dish Chicago pizza,) it’s something so intrinsically good and beautiful that it seizes us, it stops us in our tracks – something called aesthetic arrest,” he said.
Aesthetic arrest! Yes. I KNOW that feeling. It’s like having a beauty heart attack, where your breath is taken away.
Whether you are a Christian or not, this article names the problems of our age perfectly. The solution, though, to him, is faith in Jesus Christ. but for many of us, that’s another problem!
I have found Bishop Barron of YouTube – take a pick – Bishop Barron videos.
