Faith is ‘logos’, that it is a form of reason, a light issuing from the creating light…this is why it is universal, and for this reason it can be communicated to all. But this creating ‘logos’ is not a merely technical ‘logos’. it is broader than this, it is a ‘logos’ that is love, and therefore to be expressed in beauty and goodness. And in reality, for me art and the saints are the greatest apologia for our faith…if we look at the saints, this great luminous arc that God has set across history, we see that here there is truly a power of goodness that lasts over the millennia, here there is truly light from light.”

Pope Benedict XVI
