The Imaginative Conservative – “Unity in Beauty,” by Dwight Longenecker
https://theimaginativeconservative.org/2022/02/unity-in-beauty-dwight-longenecker.html?mc_cid=da89ad2d08&mc_eid=e359ff0870

“If one pursues the beautiful through art that excludes the source of beauty (the Divine), the art will be at least subjective, sentimental, and shallow and at worst aggressive, iconoclastic, ugly, and rebellious. If one pursues any kind of truth that is divorced from the Divine Source of all Truth, then the statement of that truth will be subjective, sentimental, and shallow. At worst it will be aggressive, manipulative and will lead to lies and deception. If one pursues any good cause without reference to the ultimate source of goodness, that good cause will disintegrate into petty self-righteousness, faux victimhood, and ultimately into evil, as the ‘do-gooder’ attempts to impose his subjective version of the good onto others.

What response might one make to this hypothesis? How does one reference the eternal source of Beauty, Truth, and Goodness in one’s attempt to pursue what is beautiful, good, and true? There is really only one way for human beings to tap into the eternal source of Beauty, Truth, and Goodness, and that is through worship; and the only reliable and time-tested form of worship that offers an immersion in Beauty, Truth, and Goodness is liturgy.”

Catholic Resources – “The Book of Psalms: An Overview,” by Felix Just, S.J., Ph.D.
https://catholic-resources.org/Bible/Psalms.htm

Psalms:
“The Psalter is the book in which the Word of God becomes man’s prayer. In other books of the Old Testament, ‘the words proclaim [God’s] works and bring to light the mystery they contain’ (Dei Verbum, 2). The words of the Psalmist, sung for God, both express and acclaim the Lord’s saving works; the same Spirit inspires both God’s work and man’s response. Christ will unite the two. In him, the Psalms continue to teach us how to pray.”
James Gavigan, Brian McCarthy, and Thomas McGovern, eds., Psalms and the Song of Solomon, The Navarre Bible (Dublin; New York: Four Courts Press; Scepter Publishers, 2003), 28.

St Ambrose comments: “History gives instruction and the law teaches, prophecies announce, reprimands correct, and moral teaching counsels; the book of Psalms is a compendium of all these and offers the balm of a spiritual medicine to all.”
James Gavigan, Brian McCarthy, and Thomas McGovern, eds., Psalms and the Song of Solomon, The Navarre Bible (Dublin; New York: Four Courts Press; Scepter Publishers, 2003), 28.
