Perhaps, something like Baroque will emerge from the current attempt in the Vatican and a parallel attempt in the Western world to destroy truth, beauty, and goodness. Sadly, many Catholics are unaware and want to stay dumb, and they could be described as ostriches (see the entry on Strauss). There is hope that exceptional Catholics will emerge. See the entry on new Catholic schools.
Listen to Vivaldi (1678-1741) while you view pictures by Baroque painters: Caravaggio, Peter Paul Rubens, Diego Velázquez, Nicolas Poussin, and Rembrandt van Rijn. (I went to school with a boy named Peter van Rijn in complete ignorance of his famous last name.)
Note: Vivaldi was violin master at an orphanage called the Pio Ospedale della Pietà, Devout Hospital of Mercy, in Venice. He taught music to the girls and did most of his composing there. In 1709, the board of directors dismissed him, but he returned the following year. Remember, all of history is present to God the Father. It does not come and go as we do.
The artist portrayed his 19-year-old son Titus, with whom he had an especially close relationship, as a Franciscan monk.
