Way of Beauty - Rekindling Eucharistic Amazement Through Visio Divina
We are created for beauty, the visible form of truth and goodness. The experience of beauty awakens our spiritual senses and prepares us for a new way of seeing the world. Through its beauty and spiritual power, the Eucharist provides us with the opportunity to experience a deeply personal transformation of life.
Way of Beauty aims to help you discover, or rediscover, a sense of "Eucharistic amazement" through the beauty of sacred art depicting the theology, history, and spirituality of the Mass.
This beautiful book also introduces the practice of visio divina, focusing on the Eucharist through twelve masterpieces of sacred art. Alongside each work of art, you will find prayers of the Mass, passages from Sacred Scripture and the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and a guided reflection. With each reflection, you'll be led on a Eucharistic pilgrimage of beauty to encounter how the desire and promise of Jesus to be with his disciples always continues today in the gift and mystery of the Eucharist.
