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

Epiphany Sacred Arts Guild: new guest speaker series.

H/T Busy Catholic
Religious icons can be used for prayer
“We will give insights into the 2,000 year art form, how it has evolved to create new forms of sacred art today, and how it can be used in our prayers,” said Christine Lim.
The Epiphany Sacred Arts Guild (ESAG) begins its Guest Speaker Series, with the first presentation will be by Kathy Sievers, an iconographer from Oregon.
Lim noted the guild’s purpose as a “non-profit society for people who practice creating sacred arts according to the Magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church.”
“We believe our art must be fed through prayer, contemplation, and a full sacramental life,” she said.
The presentation will be at St. Jude’s Parish, Vancouver Oct. 10th, from 12-3 p.m.
