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.

Anglican Benedictines entering the Ordinariate in Canada.

Perigrinations has the story:
http://peregrinus-peregrinus.blogspot.ca/2016/10/anglican-benedictines-in-brandon-to-be.html
Br. Sean-Patrick and Br. Robert-Charles (Bengry), along with their little Benedictine Community of Sts. James and John in Brandon, Manitoba, have discerned that God is calling them to come home to the Catholic Church as part of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter.
[...]
Br. Sean and Br. Robert supported themselves and their small Benedictine community through their stipends as Anglican priests, they are now without funds and employment. They've given up so much to enter full Catholic communion.

[...]
If you can help you'll be making a real difference to these two faithful religious men who have given so much of themselves to the Anglican Church, but who now find themselves all but destitute. They are currently seeking employment but require funds for the short-term to make ends meet and so they can maintain their ministry as they come to the Catholic Church.
If you want to offer support of any kind—prayer, financial, material—try the following links to direct your offerings to the Brothers.
Pray for them during their time of transition!

P.S.—If readers have a better way/link to offer support, leave a message in the combox.
