Humanity Is Hardwired For Worship

by Father Brian J. Soliven on Thursday January 12, 2023

When Augustine converted to Catholicism he finally found the peace he had been thirsting for. He did not find it in the popular philosophies of his day, nor in a job title, or prestige, or bodily pleasure but rather in a person -- Jesus Christ. He famously wrote in his autobiography, The Confessions, probably the greatest one liner outside of Sacred Scripture: “You have made us for Yourself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it rests in You." All other earthly pursuits will leave us empty.
