Great Beauty


From Wendy Farley’s The Wounding and Healing of Desire: “Weaving Heaven and Earth: “The great beauty that is ourself is drawn to the great beauty that is God, just as a roe is drawn to water in the desert. With nothing but our thirst to guide us, we who have “been scorned and `buked”‘ walk past and through the beauties of the desert always onward toward the Great Beauty. This beauty beyond all knowing and naming pulls us out of ourselves and toward ourselves and in doing so pulls us most intimately and scathingly toward the world. It is impossible to be drawn to the beauty of Christ without entering more vividly into the beauty of everything else.”
