A reason for beauty

The ever hilarious and often insightful Crescat gives us a simple and profound reason why the Church likes beauty in her buildings, in her music and in her art:

I like pretty. Pretty makes me happy. I lack the discipline of the Carthusians... I need to be surrounded by all the pretty the Church has to offer. It keeps me sane. It keeps me in love.
May the beauty of the Church's arts keep each of us in love.
