Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
A poetry collection inspired by Psalms 18 and 118 ( in the Douay-Reims, that would be 19 and 119 in the King James). "Caeli enarrant gloriam Dei," The heavens show forth the glory of God: a great praise of Creation psalm. To balance this praise of sense-appealing things that are immediately obvious is the long, precise celebration of the law: "Beati immaculati in via," Blessed are the undefiled in the way. Two ways of loving Truth become interwoven by Devine design.
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
Oh boy! Assuming here one did not just emerge from under a rock and already knows of the Bible, Homer, Virgil, art of the ancient world, Michelangelo, Bernini, Newton,Shakespeare et al., then we can go on to Dante, Evelyn Waugh, T.S. Eliot, G.M. Hopkins, W.B. Yeats, Augustus St. Gaudens, the Pre-Raphaelites, William Morris.....well, after this I would have to go from "Every one needs to know" to "I should like you to know"
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
