Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Mass in a Greek Orthodox church. The priest spoke movingly about Mary in aesthetic terms, telling that it was her beauty resulted in her becoming the fitting tabernacle God chose to house Himself in.

The beauty of her eyes, perhaps, where the beauty or ugliness of the soul is often discernable. Such a beautiful, pristine soul would blaze out of those eyes. Otherwise, a humble poor woman on the outskirts of the world was, as is so today, nondescript.. does not stand out.
