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.

Going fishing, or something.

Laudetur Iesus Christus!

Welcome to all visitors to the Oasis,... members, passersby, allies in the liturgical-cultural conflagrations.

Sticks are bundled; berries gathered.

Blogging will most likely ease up in the coming days for a period of a fortnight or less. A forthcoming seasonal change requires a timely shift of commitment to allow for an adequate preparation of an appropriate mental space.

In the interim, if an earth shattering event should occur, say for example the National 'c'atholic Reporter goes out of business, then readers can expect a post acknowledging such an event.

Keep the Faith!
