The very recent development of tools for viewing
documents, when combined with 2,000 years of Christian writings, provides
a powerful source of wisdom for the Christian life and a mysterious link
to the Saints who have gone before us......
"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:
The dignity of man rests above all on the fact
that he is called
to communion with God. This invitation to converse with
God is addressed to man as soon as he comes into being. For
if man exists, it is because God has created him through love,
and through love continues to hold him in existence. He
cannot live fully according to truth unless he freely
acknowledges that love and entrusts himself to his creator."
(From The Catechism
of the Catholic Church and Gaudium
"Man is placed above all creatures, and not beneath
them, and he cannot be satisfied or content except in something greater
than himself. Greater than himself there is nothing but Myself, the Eternal
God. Therefore I alone can satisfy him, and, because he is deprived of
this satisfaction by his guilt, he remains in continual torment and pain.
Weeping follows pain, and when he begins to weep, the wind strikes the
tree of self-love, which he has made the principle of all his being."

of the Church on October 4, 1970. Courtesy Christian

When I came to you, brethren, I did not come proclaiming
to you the testimony of God in lofty words or wisdom. For I decided to
know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. And I was
with you in weakness and in much fear and trembling; and my speech and
my message were not in plausible words of wisdom, but in demonstration
of the Spirit and of power, that your faith might not rest in the wisdom
of men but in the power of God. Yet among the mature we do impart wisdom,
although it is not a wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age,
who are doomed to pass away. But we impart a secret and hidden wisdom
of God, which God decreed before the ages... 1Corinthians
