ART OF GOODNESS

Food for Thought

Learning the virtues and living them leads to goodness

Adapted from Author Romano Guardini

Growing into goodness can be realized by considering the following virtues:

Truthfulness – Acceptance – Patience – Justice – Reverence

Loyalty – Disinterestedness – Asceticism – Courage – Kindness

Understanding – Courtesy – Gratitude – Unselfishness

Recollection – Silence – and Justice

…and in ‘not finding fault with others’…one will keep ‘goodness’ in his soul.”

LED BY LOVE

The Virgin of Guadalupe (1959) by Salvador Dali

GOOD SUNDAY AFFIRMATION

Mary’s love is what led Salvador Dali to create this awesome rendition of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

Known for his eccentric Surrealist art style, Dali experienced a 10-year conversion away from Freudian expression to faith found in Italian classical art.¬† He wrote that “nothing worse can happen to an ex-Surrealist than to become a mystic and know how to draw.”

Exceptional is this privately owned masterpiece to reflect Dali’s gift to mesh the Old World with the New and bridge his faith to our contemporary age for future believers.
