Truth, Beauty, Goodness

An one understand what true beauty and goodness are? Is there an objectivity to these attributes, or are they merely what one perceives them to be? Let’s focus on what God has created women to become and what society tells them to be. Does the truth lie in girls being successful career girls to the exclusion of their own feminine nature; in being reliant on the admiration of the others to their self-worth; or in their being mere physical objects of pleasure? Or are they called to find the truth of their dignity in the model of Mary, Virgin Mother of God, that reflects and participates in the Divine Truth, Beauty, and Goodness of which all production is called to reflect and share in?

The question of beauty, truth, and goodness is one that has intrigued men for centuries. The pagan philosophers seek to identify that which can be True, Good, and Beautiful. For the Christian, however, there can be no other response than that which affirms the Triune God is the True, the Beautiful, and the Good. His very essence God is all three. Everything else is so only by involvement. We can know this because God has chosen to reveal Himself to people. The Catechism of the Catholic Church #2500 informs us that”even before showing Himself to man in words of truth, God reveals Himself to (person ) through the universal language of creation.” All creation reflects its Creator; hence, we can see a thing of Beauty itself in production. Truth, beauty, and goodness, which are called”the transcendentals,” cannot be separated from one another because they’re a unity because the Trinity is One. Truth is amazing in itself. And goodness describes all that God has made. “God saw all that He had made, and it was very good” (Gen.1:31).

Man is the summit of their Creator’s job, as Scripture expresses by clearly identifying the creation of man from that of other animals. Thus, man was not only created good and beautiful, but he was also established in friendship along with his Creator and also in harmony with himself and with the creation around himin a country that would be surpassed only by the glory of the new creation in Christ. The internal stability of the very first man, the harmony between the first man and woman (Adam and Eve), and the harmony between the first couple and all creation, is called”justice.” This entire harmony of original justice has been lost by the sin of our parents. Created in a state of holiness, man was destined to be completely”divinized” by God in glory. But he preferred himself to God and disobeyed God’s command.
