So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter.—2 Thessalonians 2:15

Catholic Pacific College

It was announced here in early December of 2014 that an exciting development was forthcoming heralding growth for Redeemer Pacific College.




RPC has been listed in the Newman Guide of the Cardinal Newman Society as a recommended college.
Archbishop J. Michael Miller, CSB, celebrated Mass before the ceremony to launch the new name. The college had to seek his permission to use the word Catholic.

"Redeemer Pacific was, is, a Catholic institution. But having something in the name brings it right to the forefront," he said to a room of about 45 students, professors, and others connected with the college.—BC Catholic.
Dr. Christine Jones, president of the recently rebranded college, gave the response to Dr. Charles Taylor's presentation for the 2014 Bishop's Distinguished Lecture.

Prayers for President Jones and the entire College faculty and staff.

"A multitude of wise men is the salvation of the world(.)—Wisdom 6:24. Readers are welcome to make rational and responsible comments. Any comment that 1) offends human dignity and/or 2) which constitutes an irrational attack on the Catholic Faith will not go unchallenged. If deemed completely stupid, such a comment will most assuredly not see the light of day. Them's the rules. Don't like 'em? Move on.

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.
