We are not just material beings, but spiritual persons with a need for meaning, purpose, and fulfillment that transcends the visible confines of this world. This longing for transcendence is a longing for truth, goodness, and beauty. Truth, goodness, and beauty are called the transcendentals of being, because they are aspects of being. Everything in existence has these transcendentals to some extent. God, of course, as the source of all truth, goodness, and beauty, has these transcendentals to an infinite degree. Oftentimes, He draws us to Himself primarily through one of these transcendentals. St. Augustine, who was drawn to beauty in all its creaturely forms, found the ultimate beauty he was seeking in God, his creator, the beauty “ever ancient, ever new.”―Sister Gabriella Yi, O.P.

Surprise! CofE approves women bishops

Was there ever any doubt?

See the earlier post: Mind the Gap | CofE votes on Bishopettes  http://catholicsacristan.blogspot.ca/2014/07/mind-thegap-church-of-england-votes-on.html
Imagined post titles:
  • The Anglican Whimsy Way: lessons in how to change doctrine by a vote and why that isn't a problem (but should be).
  • CofE, ACIC, TEC... A growing list of acronyms for irrelevance.
  • Irony: the latest Anglican effort to put people back in the pews.
  • Anglicans and Catholics in dialogue—Canterbury has left the building.
