New Postulant for Dominican Sisters of Squamish, BC.

Reception of Postulant (Bronwyn), Queen of Peace Monastery.

Five University of Victoria women and Chantal, a CCO missionary, attended a vocation weekend with the Dominican Sisters in Squamish, BC.

The University of Victoria and Camosun College Catholic chaplain reports:
Cantal and the other visitors were blessed to witness the reception of Bronwyn as (a) postulant. We’ll continue to trust her to the Lord’s good keeping. She told me that the day of her arrival with the Sisters “I realized that four cities, five jobs and 2.5 years later (after graduation) I am home".
The Dominican Sisters have need of considerable support to help them recover from a recent flood.

"A multitude of wise men is the salvation of the world(.)—Wisdom 6:24. Readers are welcome to make rational and responsible comments. Any comment that 1) offends human dignity and/or 2) which constitutes an irrational attack on the Catholic Faith will not go unchallenged. If deemed completely stupid, such a comment will most assuredly not see the light of day. Them's the rules. Don't like 'em? Move on.

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.
