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.

Sanctify yourself and you will sanctify society.—St. Francis of Assisi.

News from Big C Catholics blog:
http://www.bigccatholics.com/2016/05/announcing-new-evangelization-award-for.html
The 2016 recipients of the New Evangelization Award for excellence in Catholic blogging are:
Thank you to our readers who nominated blogs for this award. We have several new sites for our monthly 'Blog of Note' series in the future.
Ad majorem Dei gloriam!

This blogger, huddled at the edge of Southern Vancouver Island, would like to echo the thanks offered by Big C Catholics by offering my own note of gratitude to all who voted for this site, to all the regular visitors, and to Big C Catholics.

Congratulations to Speak The Truth In Love and Shameless Popery! To be counted among their company is humbling and motivation to work even more diligently to, in the words borrowed from Big C Catholics,
  • feature content that is faithful to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church
  • evangelize and inform all who seek the fullness of truth
Let us continue together to pray and work (ora et labora) for the coming of the Kingdom. Together, let us always strive to do the will of God and celebrate—in communion with the Church that Jesus Himself founded!—the magnificent gift of salvation in Jesus Christ.
