The encounter with the beautiful can become the wound of the arrow that strikes the heart and in this way opens our eyes, so that later, from this experience, we take the criteria for judgment and can correctly evaluate the arguments.[...]

If we know [Christ], not only in words, but if we are struck by the arrow of His paradoxical beauty, then we will truly know Him, and know Him not only because we have heard others speak about Him. Then we will have found the beauty of Truth, of the Truth that redeems. Nothing can bring us into close contact with the beauty of Christ Himself other than the world of beauty created by faith, and light that shines out from the faces of the saints, through whom His own light becomes visible.

— Pope Benedict XVI (Cardinal Ratzinger)
The Feeling of things, the Contemplation of Beauty
Message to Communion and Liberation, August 2002, Rimini, Italy
