The Catholic Sun

Wherever the Catholic sun doth shine,
There’s always laughter and good red wine.
At least I’ve always found it so.
Benedicamus Domino!

Hilaire Belloc

How is this related to Catholic Apologetics?

The Catholic world view is an incarnate faith. God came down, humbled himself, and became man. This has the consequence that this material world is good.

I like a good glass of red wine. It points to God. But if I try to take wine and make it my meaning it turns from something that is sweet to something that is like a mouth of ashes. It’s like God has made things to lead us to him but as soon as we try to make something our fulfillment instead letting it point to him it goes wrong.
