This is what most Catholics and even many seculars mean when they refer to the beauty of The Catholic Church. Soaring Cathedral ceilings, the unspeakable beauty of The Mass, the pageantry that our Lord fully present in the Eucharist deserves. Few people can resist the smells, sounds, and vibrations in the air that are experienced during the Mass. If you don't find this beautiful, you may not like Heaven very much, since the Bible and Tradition tells us that Heaven will be nonstop worship of God. The Mass, in a very real way, is Heaven on earth. And to think, you can have it every single day, no matter where you are in this world.
I can think of few things as beautiful as serving others. This is what we were conceived for -- to help, hold, feed, wash, instruct, and love the other.
Our Blessed Mother is beauty personified. No one knows exactly what she looked like on earth or now, as Queen of Heaven. In my heart and my dreams she appears as a healer, a mother, a friend, sometimes very young and sometimes, her face etched with pain.
The sorrow of Mary has its own tragic beauty. Anyone who has mourned a loved one, or suffered deeply in any way, should cling to Mary. She is not a distant icon. She is as close to you as you allow her to be, beloved Mama of the boy Jesus, the woman who carried Jesus inside of her for nine months, felt his kicking inside of her, and finally watched him slowly die on a cross. She can take your pain, too, and share the burden of it with you. Hers is not a superficial beauty, but a supernatural one.
Life is beautiful. FIghting for life is our mission as the Body of Christ, because one of the tenets of our faith is that every life has dignity and beauty. The least among us is not always a beautiful child awaiting adoption. Sometimes the least among us is what the secular world calls a blob, or a parasite, or a "product of conception." To us, this life is beautiful, because God made it and endowed it with His presence from the second of fertilization.
Laughter is beautiful. God wants us to be joyful, silly and easily fascinated like little children. Many of us are just about beaten down with pressures and pains. If we can show the world joy in spite of that, then truly we are witnesses of Christ's redemptive love.
Peace is beautiful. Keeping silent instead of having the last word. Protecting someone else when it will reduce your own popularity to do so. Nurture peace in your own heart instead of discord, competitiveness, and jealousy.
Evangelize through beauty? Yes! But don't put beauty in the one box that you are comfortable with at this point in your spiritual journey. Let Christ show you, through His words and through humble receiving of the Eucharist, how very near to you true beauty is, and how far above you you have convinced yourself it resides.
