I already know the answer, but I’m going to ask anyway:
Have you ever been fully satisfied? How about completely free? For how long?
How long until you want a new smartphone? How far into the woods do you need to hike to “get away from it all”? How long before the new car smell wears off? (Approximately 3 1/2 minutes for those with children.)
Most of us discovered a long time ago that nothing here can satisfy us for very long. It just can’t.
And it’s not only satisfaction we crave. We want freedom. (Why else do people try to fly without a plane or deep sea dive hundreds of feet without an oxygen tank?) We want to crush the barriers in life that hem us in and quench that thirst that comes from deep inside. It’s a constant gnawing – a constant struggle.
Because we were created for true freedom! We were designed to be fully satisfied! But there’s only one way you can achieve it.
So in this episode of the The Art of Catholic, I’m going to provide some keys to help you redirect and quench the spiritual angst you have for more…because that’s your destiny!
