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

Catholic Culinary Corner

At the base of this blog in the left column is a list of recommended food related sites.

Take a moment to visit some of the excellent sites listed in the Culinary Corner section.

Speaking of food, don't forget—Friday approaches. Meatless Fridays! Buy some fresh fish. http://catholicmom.com/2015/10/09/meatless-friday-tarragon-salmon/
This and every Friday, recall specifically the Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Pray the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
And, excepting medicine, keep the one hour fast before Mass. If you embrace the good ol' days and the Extraordinary Form, keep the three hour fast!
