Thought of the Day April 29, 2019 Spurred by love

By 9:55 AM

"God, you are a mystery as deep as the sea; the more I search, the more I find, and the more I find the more I search for you. But I can never be satisfied; what I receive will ever leave me desiring more. When you fill my soul I have an even greater hunger, and I grow more famished for your light. I desire above all to see you, the true light, as you really are." (St. Catherine of Sienna)

St. Catherine of Sienna reflects the longing of every soul that has once tasted the goodness of the Lord. It cannot be fully satisfied until it is possessed by God completely. That was the cry of St. Augustine: "Our souls are restless, O Lord, until they rest in you." That was the awareness of St. Francis of Assisi. We can not love God enough. The more we love him the more we desire to love him, for he is like a bottomless pit. This is our life journey. To love the Lord with our whole mind, heart and soul.
