Pope Benedict XVI

"Beauty... is not mere decoration, but rather an essential element of the liturgical action, since it is an attribute of God Himself and His revelation."
(Pope Benedict XVI, Sacramentum Caritatis, 35)

Hodie egressa est virga de radice Iesse: hodie sine ulla peccati labe concepta est Maria: hodie contritum est ab ea caput serpentis antiqui, alleluia!

 This day a rod came forth out of Jesse; this day Mary was conceived without stain of sin; this day the head of the old serpent was crushed by Her, alleluia!
