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

Pope Kasper's Desperation

In a desperate attempt to maintain relevance and in what most likely is also an attempt to enlist the a media in a manipulation of the forthcoming Apostolic Exhortation of the Holy Father regarding the Synod on Marriage and the Family, Walter Cardinal Kasper has spoken.

Read HERE Kasper's announcement concerning the forthcoming announcement about the pending release of the soon to be issued Exhortation.

Let the faithful not fret over what is not yet known. Sure, there is cause for concern, given the wonky actions of a few errant purple and red clad hierarchs who think it possible to change the teaching of Jesus Christ.

Walter locuta est?

Let's wait until the Exhortation has been issued before reacting to statements by irrelevant bigoted hierarchs who are so out of touch with the direction being set by the Holy Spirit that it is difficult to take said prelates seriously. Most likely, with the issuance of the Exhortation, nothing will change, either for the better or the badder.

So—take a breath; ignore Walter Kasper. The Holy Spirit will simply not let the Catholic Church (founded upon Peter) follow any heresiarch into heresy.
