“A sense of personal beauty comes, I believe, only in the generous, self-giving gaze, the noticing regard, of another person.”

– Esther Lightcap Meek


“A sense of personal beauty is nevertheless accessible to all, in the life-giving noticing regard of Jesus Christ. If—when—human noticing regard fails to occur, any person may nevertheless experience it in the gaze of the Lord, in personal redemption and the celebration of the Eucharist. His alone is the face that will not go away, and his alone is our highest joy.”

– Esther Lightcap Meek
