An excellent article by Joseph Shaw which examines the New Age and Catholic faith, whilst also pointing to the way the Catholic faith could heal the modern obsession with the sensual and hedonistic:
"Dorian Gray was fascinated by what he saw, and in real life many of Wilde’s ‘decadent’ friends, and eventually Wilde himself, converted to Catholicism, which could give them what their sensuality could not give them. The explanation is that in their sensuality they were not seeking just pleasure, they were seeking meaning, and furthermore they were seeking spiritual realities manifested in created things. This is what they found in the Mass and in the Church."
