Universal Desire for Eternal God

People have always asked fundamental questions:
Who am I?
Where did I come from?
Where am I going?
Why do I need to struggle to achieve my goals?
Why is it so hard to love and be loved?
What is the meaning of  sickness, death, and evil?
What will happen after death?
These questions relate to human existence
They also move one to ask questions about the divine
Because they pertain to Eternal God’s existence
When asked for deeper reflection
They uncover an inner sense of longing for God
They challenge our minds
But the mind answers are not always sufficient
We must become aware of the mysterious yearning of the human heart
God has planted in every human heart the hunger 
And longing for the infinite
For nothing less than God
St. Augustine
A theologian from the 5th century said it best:
“Our heart is restless until it rests in you”
How our quest for God awakened
Eternal God pursues us
This spurs us to search for Him whom we were made
The Catechism presents 3 paths
Through which every person can come to Eternal God:
Creation, the human person and Revelation
