Description: Dan and Melissa explore the reality of God’s desire for us in a deep, lasting relationship with each individual soul.God's Desire for Us

Topics/Questions covered in the show:

  • What does it mean to say that God “thirsts” for us? How is this reality possible?
  • The Catechism of the Catholic Church states that God seeks to meet us at the well, longing to give us living water so that our thirst might be forever satisfied.
  • Who is it that places the desire for God in our souls?
  • God will always bring to completion what He has put into motion.

    Thank our Lord for another wonderful show. I enjoy my weekly “haven of rest” 🙂 I just wanted to say that I was so excited to hear Dan mention the new book coming out about Blessed (soon to be Saint!) Elizabeth of the Trinity! She is a beautiful advocate for those desiring to grow in prayer. I’m so thankful for the resources this website provides to assist the faithful in our journeys. May God continue to bless the work done here!
