Saint of the Day

St. Catherine Laboure (1806-1876)
Catherine was a mystic who had a vision of St. Vincent de Paul; he told her that God wanted her to work with the sick. She later had a vision of Our Lady who described to her what is now known as the Miraculous Medal.

Reflections from the Saints

Every day He humbles Himself just as He did when from from His heavenly throne into the Virgin's womb; every day He comes to us and lets us see Him in lowliness, when He descends from the bosom of the Father into the hands of the priest at the altar.
– St. Francis of Assisi

Life in Christ: Catechism #2502

Sacred art is true and beautiful when its form corresponds to its particular vocation: evoking and glorifying, in faith and adoration, the transcendent mystery of God – the surpassing invisible beauty of truth and love visible in Christ, who "reflects the glory of God and bears the very stamp of his nature," in whom "the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily." This spiritual beauty of God is reflected in the most holy Virgin Mother of God, the angels, and saints. Genuine sacred art draws man to adoration, to prayer, and to the love of God, Creator and Savior, the Holy One and Sanctifier.
