If beauty is a way to God, then it must go in tandem with goodness and truth. If one is absent the others are diminished if not destroyed.

Baptismal Font, Gregoriou Monastery, Mt. Athos
The pictures above were taken in 2005 in the monastery of Gregoriou on Mount Athos. They were taken with an old 35mm Canon. They are of the central part of the little dome over the font(?). We attended a beautiful service there before we left for Dionysiou. The faith illustrated and made visible - if only our Catholic churches could be so beautiful.
