Places of Beauty

~from today's address by the Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI in Portugal:
Dear friends, the Church considers that her most important mission in today’s culture is to keep alive the search for truth, and consequently for God; to bring people to look beyond penultimate realities and to seek those that are ultimate. I invite you to deepen your knowledge of God as he has revealed himself in Jesus Christ for our complete fulfilment. Produce beautiful things, but above all make your lives places of beauty. May Our Lady of BelĂ©m intercede for you, she who has been venerated down through the centuries by navigators, and is venerated today by the navigators of Goodness, Truth and Beauty.

I don't know about the rest of you but I hear the voice of my Lord Jesus in these words from our Papa. Knowing God - being with Him - is the most important thing and then, because of His love, doing good, bringing beauty into the world - that is our mission in life. Thanks for sharing! brother Joseph, SFO
