Beauty: Divine Attributes #14 – Jun 18 – Homily – Fr Terrance

Views 100


 

Fr Terrance gives the homily at Bloomington, IN on Jun 18, 2021, on how God is Beautiful, another of His divine attributes, and one of the transcendental attributes or categories of being which God has to an infinite degree. Creatures only participate in these attributes. He defines beauty as intrinsic integrity that manifests itself outwardly. It is primarily a spiritual value that goes beyond what we see and lasts beyond the outward beauty that tends to corrupt. He uses the examples of Mother Theresa of Calcutta and a harmonious orchestra. All of God's attributes are perfections that reach full beauty and unity. His beauty is most perfectly manifested in Heaven where God will be our lamp that will shine beauty on all. Beauty on earth can raise our minds the beauty of the creator and inspire us to be beautiful in God's eyes by growing in grace, becoming more like Jesus and Mary.
