Beauty Created for the Mass

The Church [holds] that the rituals of the Mass, or liturgy, puts participants in direct contact with Jesus, and that the beauty and preciousness of the objects and vestments used in the Mass help the spirit raise itself to the beauty and greatness of God.

I may not have gotten all that right, I am finding it harder and harder to read my own scribbled notes to myself, but that is the gist of a card at a museum exhibit called "Splendors of the Vatican" that I was fortunate enough to see.

I assume the words are by the curator, a Monsignor... okay, REALLY cant read it, but begins with a "Z," and ends with an "i."

I am a very fortunate person.
