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

Do you see what God sees? Witnessing the Cross; witnessing to the Cross.

If you want to see the Cross made manifest,
Witness the tortured limbs and outstretched hands of those murdered by terrorists representing the Islamic State.
Witness the tiny hands, lungs, liver and heart of an aborted child being grasped by an abortionist's forceps.
Witness the destruction of inalienable rights—the right to freedom of conscience and religion.
Witness the poorest of the poor, the material and spiritually destitute, desperate and craving succour.
Witness the destruction of marriage and the family.
Now do you see Christ crucified? Now do you hear God's voice? How will you respond? Whatever you decide to do, start and end with prayer.

"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.
