Beauty: Dignity and the Liturgy

You must therefore take all the attention and care possible because dignity of the liturgy shines even in the smallest details in the form of true beauty. We must remember that those saints that lived poverty with particular ascetic commitment always desired that the most beautiful and precious objects be set apart for divine worship.

-Beauty in Each Aspect of the Liturgical Rite [unofficial NLM translation]

(cf. John 12:3-8)
