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.

Church of England lands another body blow to Christian unity.

At the close of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, the Church of England has signalled its thoughts on the unity of Christians to the Catholic Church and the orthodox eastern churches by "ordaining" a woman bishop.

One might recall what the Russians have had to say about a development of this kind:
In objection to the CofE action, the lone voice of Paul Williamson, an Anglican minister who objected to the "ordination", echoed in the great York Minster, the once Catholic building appropriated during the Tudor revolt.

A word to our Church of England friends who cannot abide by this recent development: Anglican Ordinariate.
