Beauty in Brief: Evangelizing the Social and Political Order

"Beauty in Brief" is a series of video clip excerpts from the Nothing More Beautiful presentations made at St. Joseph's Basilica on December 6, 2012.  We offer them for use as short reflections. Each clip concludes with a few questions you may wish to consider.

Nothing More Beautiful was produced in partnership with Salt and Light Catholic Media Foundation, a registered charity devoted to spreading the light of Christ through media.
