Beauty


Miss France 2007

Father Corapi said that beauty is a gift that is seldom returned to God. Of those who are endowed with this gift, he said few use it for the glorification of God. Physical beauty is one thing, but beauty of the soul is quite another. I know in which of these pictures I see true beauty, a beauty that shines through from the depths of the very soul. Mother Theresa often said she could see the face of Christ in everyone she met. The beauty of that joy is reflected in her own face, and she returned it all to God.

... just like painting flower-petals. The Romanian national poet, Mihai Eminescu, once wrote something about "mending the sky with stars, smearing the sea with waves". I think it fits here.
