University Students' Society issues statement re attack on campus Pro-life group

A statement condemning the theft and violence perpetrated against pro-life students has been issued by the University of Victoria Students' Society president Kayleigh Erickson regarding two recent attacks on the Youth Protecting Youth pro-life group.

The statement reads in part:
On September 10th, it was reported that two students vandalized the information booth of the UVSS Youth Protecting Youth club and stole three models that were part of the club’s display. The same conduct was reported again on September 11th. A police report has been made and the University has been advised.
While noting that a police report has been filed, Erickson fails to mention that two females attacked pro-life students at the YPY Clubs Days booth and, in addition to the first theft of property that was recovered the same day, the female attackers tossed used cat litter at the YPY students. Erickson's letter also fails to mention that a second attack occurred and that
the vandals had broken into the closed clubs room and that more filthy litter had been dumped on the table and the fetal models - valued at several hundred dollars - had been stolen.—YPY Media Release.

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.
