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.

To the matter of the Supreme Court of the United States: life matters.

Who will fill the spot left by Antonin Scalia, R.I.P.?

Perhaps?
"Joan L. Larsen earned her JD, magna cum laude, from Northwestern University School of Law. She clerked for the Hon. David B. Sentelle of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit and for Justice Antonin Scalia of the U.S. Supreme Court. She also worked for Sidley & Austin’s Washington, D.C., office and focused her practice on Constitutional, Criminal, and Civil Litigation law. Larsen also served as deputy assistant attorney general in the U.S. Department of Justice Office of Legal Counsel. She is currently an adjunct professor at the University of Michigan School of Law."
Post Ginsberg?
"Utah Supreme Court Justice Thomas Lee—The brother of strong pro-life Senator Mike Lee, Justice Lee ruled in 2011 that fetuses qualified as “minor children” under the state’s wrongful death law."
"11th Circuit Judge William Pryor—A name Trump has mentioned before, and a respected pro-life jurist who called Roe v. Wade “the worst abomination in the history of constitutional law” (a declaration with which many pro-abortion legal scholars agree)."
