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.

Give me your movie stars, disgruntled citizens, tired liberals... . Canadian immigration website crashes.

From FoxNews:
In the midst of the 2016 U.S. presidential election, anyone wishing to look into possibly moving to Canada had some difficulties Tuesday night.
The Immigration and Citizen page repeatedly crashed as election results rolled in and started to show Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump in the lead.
An attempt to access the website showed a “500 – Internal server error.”
A (dirty) laundry list of celebrities, including Lena Dunham, Bryan Cranston and Stephen King, has all threatened to leave the U.S. should Trump win the election.
Of course, said A-List refugees and would-be immigrants will happily continue to receive income from their activities in their former homeland. Move to Canada; keep a Manhattan apartment or a 10,500 square foot seaside cottage in the Hamptons? Life is rough.

Will Lena keep her four-bedroom apartment in Brooklyn Heights for which she shelled out $4,887,600? It's difficult to imagine Bryan Cranston giving up his 2,400-square-foot Platinum LEED certified "green beachhouse" in Ventura County.
