There is a Divine Reality underneath and inherent in the world of things; there is in the human soul a natural capacity, similarity, and longing for this Divine Reality; and the final goal of existence is union with this Divine Reality.

The Perennial Tradition
Everywhere Visible and Revealed
Sunday, January 19, 2014
The Perennial Tradition encompasses the recurring themes in all of the world’s religions and philosophies that continue to say:
There is a Divine Reality underneath and inherent in the world of things,
There is in the human soul a natural capacity for, similarity to, and longing for this Divine Reality, and
The final goal of existence is union with this Divine Reality.
The “Perennial Philosophy” or “Perennial Tradition” is a term that has come in and out of popularity in Western and religious history, but has never been dismissed by the Universal Church. I was trained in Catholic traditional theology and Franciscan alternative orthodoxy; these and the whole Judeo-Christian tradition taught me to honor the visibility and revelation of God in all the world traditions.
“For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—God’s eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that we are without excuse” (Romans 1:20).
