Art is by definition something that is beautiful. Otherwise, it wouldn't be art. Something that pretends to be art, i.e., something of low artistic merit, might be called, as a philosophy professor of mine once termed it, "gart". Gart is "bad art".Those who condemn Catholics who love the Tradition of the Apostles, that is, Catholics who strive to live fully the Gospel and ask Jesus for His grace to continually repent and the grace to live fully the Gospel, let those who condemn you hear their limp complaints by keeping a respectful silence. When they are finished grinding away at your faithful witness to truth, goodness and beauty, offer them an invitation to embrace the truth of beauty. Offer them an opportunity to discover the beauty of holiness.
CCC 460 The Word became flesh to make us "partakers of the divine nature": "For this is why the Word became man, and the Son of God became the Son of man: so that man, by entering into communion with the Word and thus receiving divine sonship, might become a son of God." "For the Son of God became man so that we might become God." "The only-begotten Son of God, wanting to make us sharers in his divinity, assumed our nature, so that he, made man, might make men gods."
