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.

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

Mystery of Faith—8 week course by Fr. Harrison

Newly minted priest Fr. Harrison Ayre will be offering a course that explores "the concept of Mystery and how it applies to a variety of elements of the Faith."
"From the Sacraments to Church history, to studies on the Person of Jesus and the Trinity, we will explore this rich theological concept, its presence in wide ranging elements of faith, and how Mystery is to be (the) central lived reality of our lives." (St. Andrew's Parish bulletin)
The course begins October 6th at 7pm and continues Tuesdays for 8 weeks.

Sign-up: Saint Andrew's Cathedral parish office: 250-388-5571.
