ZENIT has posted an article on the conclusions delivered by the Plenary Council of the Pontifical Council for Culture here. The two-day council concluded yesterday. The Vatican website previously posted the schedule for their meetings here. An earlier post here included the press release announcing the council's subject matter, which was beauty as a way to evangelism and dialogue. The conclusions, announced by Cardinal Poupard, president of the council, spoke of the need to rediscover beauty and the need to live lives of holiness. It warned of liturgical clericalism which could transform ceremonies into shows. The ZENIT article said:
"'The Church can only propose the Gospel message in all its beauty, which is capable of attracting spirits and hearts, offering through its pastors and faithful the testimony of integrity of life and of clarity of the message they reflect,' said the cardinal when presenting one of the principal conclusions."
