"The Beauty Of A Soul Reflects Itself On The Face"

Jason Evert says in his book, Theology of Her Body (pg 31):
"The famous Russian novelist Dostoyevsky once wrote, 'Beauty will save the world.' Perhaps more than ever--at a time when beauty is so often distorted or idolized--his statement rings true. The world needs a renewal of women who understand the power of their beauty, and who will use it to draw the hearts of men towards God, instead of distracting them from Him. The kind of beauty that has the greatest power is not a mere physical attribute. In the words of [Venerable] Archbishop Fulton Sheen, 'The beauty on the outside never gets into the soul. But the beauty of the soul reflects itself on the face.'"
