The New Evangelization: Bonaventure, Ratzinger, Giusanni….

“Beauty draws our heart out of accommodation with daily routine, from decaying into nothingness, from not being present to ourselves. Beauty wounds, but precisely in this way it reminds man of his Destiny, it reawakens the ‘I’, makes it present. The encounter with beauty can become the arrow that wounds the heart and in this way open its eyes, so that, now, from this experience, the heart has criteria for judging.”– Joseph Ratzinger, La Bellezza, La Chiesa. Liberia Editrice Vaticana – Itaca (p. 16)
