True Beauty: A Reflective Prayer



God, I was thinking today about beauty.

"What's beauty?" I asked myself. And,

"What's truly beautiful?" I asked myself.

Nature? Trees, waterfalls, oceans, skies?

People? My wife, children, friends?

And, then, you answered: "Holiness."

Ah, yes, holiness. Holiness is beauty.

Beauty is holiness. They interlock.

They are interchangeable. Holiness.

That makes sense, every bit of sense.

A life of holiness is a life lived beautifully.

You, O God, are holy. It is who you are.

And you, O God, are absolutely beautiful.

You are holy and holiness is beauty.

And then it hit me: You call me to you.

That means you call me to holiness.

I am to be holy as you are holy.

That also means you call me to beauty.

I am to be beautiful as you are beautiful.

I am to be holy as you are holy.

And, so, I fix my eyes on you.

I fix my eyes on your radiant beauty.

Holy, Holy, Holy are you, Lord, God Almighty.

Beauty, Beauty, Beauty, are you,

Lord, God Almighty. Amen. Amen. Amen.
