Catholic Word of the Day: TRANSCENDENCE, 12-08-11
CatholicReference.net ^ | 12-08-11 | Fr. John Hardon's Modern Catholic Dictionary

Featured Term (selected at random):

TRANSCENDENCE

Supassing excellence, which may be either relative or absolute. It is relative when the excellence surpasses some objects below it, as human nature transcends the irrational creation. It is absolute when the excellence surpasses in being and activity all other beings. Only God is absolutely transcendent; in being because he alone is infinite and perfect Being who cannot change; in activity because he alone has existence of himself as uncreated First Cause on whom all creatures depend for their least operation.
