The Beautiful Ones

One Sunday morning I saw the feet of a woman. I never saw her face but the voice of the Lord spoke and said: See how she seeks purity! See how  beautiful  she is!

Then I understood that in the Kingdom of God, true beauty is defined by spiritual purity. And so it is written:
Blessed are the pure in heart,
    for they will see God. [Matthew 5:8]

Then the word goes on to say:

How beautiful on the mountains
    are the feet of those who bring good news [Isaiah 52:7]

Yet still:
Depart, depart, go out from there!
    Touch no unclean thing!
Come out from it and be pure,
    you who carry the articles of the Lord’s house.[Isaiah 52:11]
