Beauty is a promise of happiness!
A promise which is never going to be fulfilled……for whoever pursues it in this world.
No matter how hard he tries, no matter how much wealth and power he piles up to get it, that thirst is never going to be satisfied.

That’s because beauty does not belong to this world and you cannot possess it. Indeed, you cannot possess anything, as you have nothing which has not been given to you. You are the image of the Most High God, but nothing is left of an image when it’s separated from its source.

Beauty is the most direct, immediately accessible, language of God, Whom belong everything. That’s the reason why it arouses a sudden longing in us, but only in Him that yearning can be sated, that promise can be fulfilled.

May the Lord give to every man the wisdom to understand it.
