Do you long for happiness? I’m sure you do—it’s the desire at the center of every human heart. It can seem impossible to hold on to, like sand through splayed fingers. BUT there is one source that will remain, Jesus. Listen as Richaél Lucero recounts how the words of St. John Paul II reminded her of this over and over during Lent. And shares why it’s a message we should all take with us this season and next.
It is Jesus that you seek when you dream of happiness; He is waiting for you when nothing else you find satisfies you; He is the beauty to which you are so attracted; it is He who provoked you with that thirst for fullness that will not let you settle for compromise; it is He who urges you to shed the masks of a false life; it is He who reads in your heart your most genuine choices, the choices that others try to stifle.
It is Jesus who stirs in you the desire to do something great with your lives, the will to follow an ideal, the refusal to allow yourselves to be ground down by mediocrity, the courage to commit yourselves humbly and patiently to improving yourselves and society, making the world more human and more fraternal.St. Pope John Paul II
You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it rests in you.St. Augustine
