In this first episode of our series on beauty, Katie Weiss, Founder of Behold Visio Divina joins Jessica to talk about why beauty is important for the spiritual life. Jess and Katie discuss:
- The 3 transcendentals: truth, goodness, and beauty
- Is beauty “in the eye of the beholder” or is beauty objective?
- St. Thomas Aquinas’ teaching on the 3 aspects of beauty: integrity, proportion, and clarity.
Katie Weiss is the Founder of Behold Visio Divina, a ministry that seeks to teach people how to pray with art. Katie lives in Washington D.C. with her husband and is expecting their first baby.
