Saturday, Fifth Week of Lent

I always sympathise with Caiaphas.

“You fail to see that it is better for one man to die for the people than for the whole nation to be destroyed.” (John 11:45-46)

But utilitarianism is always a blind alley because it has no direction save its own interest.

The Latin sung mass I heard today in the Cathedral was not utilitarian. It was something more important: beautiful.
