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.

'Hi' and 'Welcome' to a new "Follower"!

Follower #21 has arrived! Peace be with you!

(Blogger uses the term 'Follower'. First and foremost, may we all be faithful followers of our Lord Jesus Christ. To Him be all glory, praise and honour!)

All readers, members or otherwise, are much appreciated. A special note of thanks to those who share their wisdom from time to time and who, most importantly, take seriously the Faith.

Let us be ever mindful that we can offer prayers for each other, and especially mindful of the privilege given to us by God Who grants us the grace to offer prayers for those who have no voice.

A.M.D.G.
