Auden "I did not know my longing until I encountered You." ∼ CL Hymn The desire for God is a drive as deep as it is indestructible. There can be no other longing as profound or pervasive.

This Is True CREO EN DIOS! - December 10, 2014 There is a wonderful Advent prayer by Daniel Berrigan's Testimony: The Word Made Flesh that I often use at the beginning of Advent programs I give.

When we spend hours before God in prayer, before the tabernacle or exposed here on the altar, we allow God to work in our lives to revive our initial fervor and faith.
