Fr Lang on new sacred art programme

Zenit has news of a new master's program in architecture, sacred arts and liturgy at the European University of Rome of which Fr Uwe Michael Lang is one of the directors. (Cf. Master's Program Aims to Halt Art Crisis). Fr Lang commented on the crisis in sacred art:
... a crisis of the deepest roots, a crisis that has swept away, even before art, beauty itself, of which it should be the bearer. The very concept of 'fine arts,' of which the conciliar Constitution on Sacred Liturgy speaks, is debated.
Following Hans Urs von Balthasar, he also stressed that
Together with the loss of the beautiful, the good and the true have also been lost.
