Poet Principle of Education #3d

Offer specific disciplines to awaken the taste for beauty and elicit a response to it, such as:

--Music: according to Josef Pieper, beautiful music not only improves our character but turns us from worldliness, spurs us to pursue higher realities, undistracted by “easy” solutions, and turns us with “resolve, constancy, courage, and hope” towards God [Only the Lover Sings (San Francisco:  Ignatius Press), 50-51].

Posts relating to this can be found here 2008-2010 and more general resources on music and Christian Integration are here.
