The Sistine Madonna by Raphael
Notre Dame Cathedral
When a man stood before one of Turner's
unrivalled paintings and said, "I can see nothing
in it," the great artist replied, "Don't you wish you
could?" A tourist upon his return home was asked
what he thought of Notre Dame, and the Sistine
Madonna, and some other of the world's remarkable
productions. He said he did not see them, and went
on to say that while his wife did the Cathedrals and
his daughter did the art galleries, he did the cafes.
There are some things that must be spiritually discerned
and appreciated, and if eyes are blind, and heart is dull
and the soul desensitized, no wonder it is difficult to
appreciate the higher things of God.~Swift
Interesting thought for today.
