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.

Toward A New Roof

Lord, I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed.—St. Matthew 8:8
The time is long overdue to attend to the spiritual and physical roof under which the Lord is daily invited to enter under. More than a few holes have appeared in said roof this past six months. So, for the next two weeks, blogging will be suspended while the roof receives some much needed care and repair. Please, dear readers, pray for yours truly.

And so, for the next fortnight, this blogger places himself in the hands of the merciful Lord and readies himself to hear and act on God's word. God's will be done.
