People magazine doesn't know what beauty is

I saw People magazine at the grocery store and noticed that they have their annual most beautiful people issue out. Angelina Jolie was #1 and on the cover. Yuck. Angelina Jolie has a gorgeous face and body but she aint beautiful.

Beautiful is Mother Teresa. Beautiful is Pope Benedict. Beautiful is the little old woman who comes to the 8 AM Mass at St. Matthews everyday. Beautiful, is Fr. Theoden hobbling towards the altar with a radiant look on his face. Beautiful is Fr. Pablo Straub doing a mission. Beautiful is my Mama who worked two jobs to keep me in Immaculate Conception Academy after my father died. Beautiful is my friend Rani Lou who has six children and who is willing to take as many God wants her to have. Look beyond the face and body if you want to see beauty.
