Our earthly worship environment should help us see what we can’t see. It should strive to imitate its heavenly counterpart, which we glimpse through Revelation. Too often our liturgical are, music and architecture bow to utility and economy, when they should bow to the transcendent. John’s vision inspires us to rethink the ways we design our churches. The visible should be a vehicle for the invisible, giving our senses a taste of the glorious mystery in which we partake, filling our hearts with reverence and awe, lifting our minds and hearts to heaven.
—from A Father Who Keeps His Promises by Scott Hahn, Ch. 13 Here Comes the Bride
