“The works of art born in Europe in past centuries are incomprehensible if one does not take into account the religious soul that inspired them. … When faith, celebrated in a particular way in the liturgy, encounters art, a profound synchrony is created, because both can and want to praise God, making the Invisible visible.”

Every Wednesday, Pope Benedict holds an Audience in St. Peter’s Square of in the Paul VI Audience Hall.  He has spent these times of catechesis on the Apostles, the Church Fathers, St. Paul, medieval theologians…

And now, architecture.  He gave a beautiful address on this beautiful feast of the Dedication of the Basilicas of Peter and Paul. (it can be found here.)

Is there anything this man doesn’t teach about?!  (I don’t think so!)
