Readings For A Valentine (Leighton Ford)

“Science tells us that the more symmetrical a face is, the more beautiful it is …

“More often than not it is the inner beauty of heart and mind that illuminates the face. A smile can completely transform a face. Ultimately, it is the soul that makes the face beautiful. Each face is its own landscape …

“This is also the grace that love brings into one’s life. As the soul can render the face luminous so too can love turn up the hidden light within a person’s life …

“When we say to someone: ‘You are beautiful’ it is … a recognition and invocation of the dignity, grandeur and grace of their spirit …

“When we affirm another’s beauty, we affirm something that cannot be owned or drawn into the small-mindedness or emotional need.”

-John O’Donohue in Beauty

 

“And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.”

-2 Corinthians 3:18
