But Pope Benedict said something we try to keep in mind:
The only really effective apologia for Christianity comes down to two arguments, namely, the saints the Church has produced and the art which has grown in her womb.”-Joseph Ratzinger (later Pope Benedict XVI)
He’s right. The two most powerful ways to shape hearts and minds? Personal witness and beauty.
That’s why it’s so important to tell stories, especially through art.
And there is a powerful Christmas story that not enough people know about.
