Something even skeptics can know

“Beauty is something that even the most skeptical moderns can know.  Balthasar once wrote that people who doubt they can say what’s good or what’s true can’t be similarly skeptical about the meaning of beauty, once they’ve experienced it.  People know that they know what’s beautiful.  Thus beauty is one way we can introduce our doubting friends and colleagues to the mystery they often deny: the mystery that there is truth and we can know it.” (George Weigel)
