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.

Circle of Strife: Germany—immigrant on immigrant violence.

The naive policies of the regressive left continue to blind populations to serious injustice and its cause. As if the horrendous persecution they experienced in their homelands isn't enough, Christian and Yezidi immigrants are suffering a second round of persecution in western host countries.

In Stuttgart a case of abuse toward an Assyrian Christian by a Muslim roommate led to a petition for separate housing that was signed by over 17,000 people online. The petition, organised by the Central Oriental Christians, asked the City of Stuttgart to, “please accommodate the displaced Christians in Stuttgart-Neugereut and keep them from further distress and persecution to which they are exposed in a decentralised accommodation.”
The matter was brought to the city and a separate asylum centre for 30 Christians was approved by the council. Spokesman for Stuttgart Sven Matis told the paper that after speaking to the district assistant they would be able to approve accommodation for the 30 Christians in Neugereut by the end of April.
Martin Lessenthin, CEO of the International Society for Human Rights also commented on the systematic persecutions of Christians all across German asylum homes. He said it was common to see both Christians and Yazidis subject to torment and beatings and while it is not desirable to accommodate migrants separately, it may be inevitable for the safety of the minorities.
Pray for the persecuted; pray for their persecutors.

In Flüchtlingsheimen kommt es oft zu schweren Konflikten zwischen verschiedenen Gruppen. Frauen, Christen und Homosexuelle werden besonders oft attackiert – und nun zum Teil gesondert untergebracht.
In refugee camps, there are often serious conflicts between different groups. Women, Christians and homosexuals are, in particular, attacked often - and are now, in part, housed separately.
