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.

Shut de door, defrock the devils. Cardinal Marx's cabal meets in Rome.

H/T Vox Cantoris

News is out that Cardinal Marx's not-so secret cabal of clergy and clones held a comfy meeting behind closed doors at the Pontifical Gregorian University.

Cardinal Marx's cozy clique met in shadows to discuss what most people probably can guess to be the topic du jour. Suffice it to say, said coterie of clerics and other conniving co-conspirators likely wasn't meeting to defend the Church's teaching. According to leaks, the gathering was nothing less than a liberal-religionist lovefest. Or,... is that lust-fest?

A significant number of journalists—sympathetic to the shadow agenda?—attended. Having been given front row seats at the dissenters' prarade, there can be little doubt that the media will play a part in prepping the public as part of a full court press to create a "media synod" in what will surely end in a failed attempt to co-opt the XIV Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops on the Family (2015) to be held in Philadelphia, October 4th to the 25th.

The Holy Father recently commented that
I only read one newspaper, La Repubblica, ... a [Roman] daily aimed at the middle class. I look at it in the morning and leaf through. It doesn’t take me more than 10 minutes.
As it happens, Marco Ansaldo, a reporter for the Italian daily newspaper La Repubblica was present at the invite-only closed door session. He characterized the discussion taking place as
revolutionary, uttered by clergymen.
Perhaps the Holy Father will have a 10 minute chat with Mr. Ansaldo about what he heard.
