Eighteenth Sunday of Ordinary Time

We would not have a gadget in our house five minutes without knowing what it was for; yet some live twenty or sixty years without knowing why they are here or where they are going. When life is meaningless, it is dull; the absence of a goal or purpose begets worries, anxieties, psychoses, and neuroses. What is the use of living unless we know the purpose of living?” Fulton J. Sheen from “Life Is Worth Living”

I love this quote from Bishop Fulton J. Sheen. We are wired to know our creator and origins, just as a child desires to know their biological parents. The devil wants to create a climate where we become so busy and enamored with the material world that we cease to contemplate the bigger and deeper questions of life—the questions that lead us to God, Happiness, and Fulfillment.             Pax-Fr. Vic
