This is a new word for my vocabulary: pulchritude. For some time the mainstream media has applied the meaning of this word to a certain candidate of their preferred political party. But this candidate’s popularity seems to have faded and with this the mainstream media’s view of this candidate seems to have lost its pulchritude.

How much better when our perception of pulchritude has an everlasting basis that cannot fade away. For instance:

How pulchritudinous upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth! (Isaiah 52:7)
