Search

Why Search
• Man’s desire for God is written on his heart
• God exists for relationship
• Our lives are ordered/fulfilled when we are in relationship with Him

From Scripture and Tradition
“Yet when you seek the LORD, your God, from there you shall indeed find Him if you search after Him with all your heart and soul.”
Deuteronomy 4:29

“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 #27

“In the depths of his heart there always remains a yearning for absolute truth and a thirst to attain full knowledge of it. This is eloquently proved by man’s tireless search for knowledge in all fields. It is proved even more by his search for the meaning of life.” 
Veritatis Splendor #2

“Thou hast formed us for Thyself, and our hearts are restless until they rest in Thee”
St. Augustine, Confessions

Thinking Out Loud
“I want to know if there is more to life than this?”

Summary
We are looking for something and that something is God.
