Like saplings striving upward, we have within us a deep desire, something we can’t often put into words, except to say the fulfillment of this desire would somehow be ultimately satisfying.This desire living in our innermost being is a response to God’s love for us, a desire planted with utmost care by God, a desire to return to a place of Holy Union with our Beloved. Most of the time we don’t recognize the source of this desire, so we try to fill it with other things.

-Br. Nicholas Bartoli, SSJE
