Lulled by the sunrays: the baroque!
Like the chasuble? Could have been designed by a landscape gardener! Hey, is that rhubarb in the design! Welcome to the water-color and oil-paints of the baroque (no spooky modern vestmetns here)!
With deliberateness beauty is sought in the liturgy. Of course beauty can bear witness for itself. We give our best to God in homage to Him. Even good-mannered and honest sceptics can see the beauty in the liturgy and feel: "This boomerang is the ultimate paradoxical fulfilment of my aspirations - it is the worship of the outspread King of Glory!"
