Are You Seeking Happiness?

Today's Gospel of the woman at the well always touches us. We (all of us individually) are the woman thirsting for God! We are the ones that need to go to Him for a "drink" of water! The other day at Mass, the reading of the day was from Jeremiah 17,
"Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose hope is the Lord.

He is like a tree planted beside the waters

that stretches out its roots to the stream:

It fears not the heat when it comes, its leaves stay green;

In the year of drought it shows no distress, but still bears fruit."

This is so powerful. In a world of uncertainty and interesting ups and downs, God is telling us what the answer is! The answer is daily communion with HIM. A daily connection with the Only One Who can truly sustain us. "My dear young people, I know what you seek, you seek happiness. Seek it with all your might for it is your right. But remember, the happiness you seek has a name and a face - Jesus!" - Benedict XVI
