Deacon Michael Bickerstaff on Religion that is True, Good, and Beautiful

"Pontius Pilate infamously asked Jesus, 'What is truth?'

"A number of years ago, Sister Regina Marie OCD, a Carmelite Sister of the Most Sacred Heart of Los Angeles, spoke at the Atlanta Catholic Business Conference. She asked the audience a question, 'What is the greatest of truths?'

"The answer she gave was simply, 'God is.'

"I remember one of the nearly 400 people in the audience call out, 'God is what?'

"'That's all,' she said, 'God is… He exists!'

"Here is another great truth. All that exists apart from God is His creation. His creation comes from Him out of his abundant goodness and love, particularly His love of us. . . ."

In a recent commentary, Deacon Michael Bickerstaff (Editor in chief and co-founder of the Integrated Catholic Life eMagazine) reflected on how the True, the Good, and the Beautiful are attributes of God's Being and also attributes of His creation, and therefore of us.
