To fall in love with God is the greatest of all romances;
to seek Him, the greatest adventure;
to find Him, the greatest human achievement.

A glimmer of the splendor

I'm sorry I haven't been posting much of anything lately, let alone writing anything significant. It's not that I have nothing to say or write about, it's just that I have been very busy with school and other activities lately, and properly writing a blog post can take me quite some time and requires a specific mindset. I will try and do better. :)

Anyway, the whole thing is beautiful, but here is passage from Pope John Paul II's Letter to Artists:

“Every genuine artistic intuition goes beyond what the senses perceive and, reaching beneath reality’s surface, strives to interpret its hidden mystery. The intuition itself springs from the depths of the human soul, where the desire to give meaning to one’s own life is joined by the fleeting vision of beauty and of the mysterious unity of things. All artists experience the unbridgeable gap which lies between the work of their hands, however successful it may be, and the dazzling perfection of the beauty glimpsed in the ardor of the creative moment: what they manage to express in their painting, their sculpting, their creating is no more than a glimmer of the splendor which flared for a moment before the eyes of their spirit.”
