"St. Albert defines beauty in terms of light, which is present in every being as a reflection of the divine light. All created perfections stem from God, who is their model and exemplar. They all exist most perfectly in him. Every creature is composite...but God's being alone is simple (simplex essentia). That is why his proper name, revealed in Scripture, is 'He Who Is' (Exod. 3:14)"--Armand A. Maurer, C.S.B., on Saint Albert the Great in Medieval Philosophy, 1962. Saint Albert's feast day is tomorrow, November 15.
