Have you read the latest Credenda?

I especially appreciated Mrs. Wilson's column this month on creating beauty. I'm one of those who has always felt guilty for loving beautiful things and for wanting to make the things and the people around me beautiful. It's always felt so... fleshly and unspiritual. But no, she says, "God wants His children to take pleasure in the earthly things He has bestowed on us."

"Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created. (Revelation 4:11)"

We who are created in his image, and most especially we who have been given his name in the waters of baptism, honour him when we delight in those things that our Lord was pleased to create.
