Finding God in the Wilderness


Fr. Longenecker on asceticism, desire and the search for happiness:

What applies to marriage applies to any other desire or any other dream we have. The best career in the world will not make us happy. All the money in the world will not make us happy.

All of these desires simply point us to a deeper desire, which is the desire for God.
