The desire for God is written in the human heart, because man is created by God and for God; and God never ceases to draw man to himself. Only in God will he find the truth and happiness he never stops searching for. (Catechism of the Catholic Church, Part I, Section I)Instead of spending our time on earth in search of God’s love, we find ourselves settling on temporary pleasures. In the search for God, we must learn to restrain those personal desires that create an unceasing amount of noise in our souls. So, as we clean the cobwebs of our house and remove the clutter, let’s attempt to replace those items not with more “things” or an emptiness, but with Divine Love. For without God, and the desire for His Love, we cannot find joy in this life and we will struggle to earn everlasting happiness in heaven.
