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.

Good news from around the blogosphere


Sacred Music Workshop sponsored by Musica Oramus and planned for June 23 at Saint Mary’s Visitation Parish in Elm Grove. Geared to teenagers and young adults (ages 12-35), this is an excellent initiative inspired by the pontificate of Benedict XVI, and will no doubt contribute to a genuine liturgical renewal.
