What are you are hungry for? 

The world, with all its proposals is trying hard to satisfy us and make us happy. There are some problems with that. It is quite obvious that the task is beyond our capacity. It is also obvious that there are deadly rules in this world as it is mortal and limited. We are, also, very different and have different areas where we measure our deepest fulfilment. Apart from that, once we have awakened strange goals or developed unhealthy habits, we place ourselves on the fence. Importantly, putting aside our choice, preferences and desires, and listening to what is written in our human nature, we will find the very principal likeness to God, that we cannot fully find in ourselves except through a sincere gift of ourselves. Finally, when we ask the most basic question of why did God make us? We ought to acknowledge the liberating truth that he made us for himself so that we know him, love him and serve him in this world and to be happy with him for-ever in the next world. The true religion which we profess, shares great light upon our minds that this world is not our destiny and completion of our happiness. However in this world our hearts are restless until we find our rest in God, until we live our calling which is participation in God’s own life who reveals himself, and who even invites us to intimacy. In this light, the important question, apart from the one from the last week (Will you give everything in order to have the biblical pearl?) is: Where is your heart? Then you will see what are you are hungry for.
