Pope Benedict XVI walks during an unveiling ceremony for a new fountain dedicated to him in the Vatican Gardens at the Vatican July 5, 2010
Pope Benedict tells the architect, “Ah so you have not read what I have written about beauty. Authentic beauty, however, unlocks the yearning of the human heart, the profound desire to know, to love, to go towards the Other, to reach for the Beyond. Other than that I like this fountain just fine.”
Update: Apparently the fisheye lens used rather distorts this fountain.
Though still the words beauty don’t come in mind to me.
