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.

Richard Collins: rest in peace!

The sad news has arrived. Richard Collins, author of the blog Linen On The Hedgerow, has died.

Richard was a regular visitor to this blog. He was one of the first to support me in this online adventure. His visits to the blog were always thoughtful and precisely influential. His commentary on his blog was an inspiration and guiding presence. He will be missed.

Eternal rest grant unto Richard, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him.

May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
