The desire for holiness

Desire is a term that seems to have lost some of its more positive meaning in recent years. Today the word is perhaps most often associated with physical or emotional urges—the craving after personal power, prestige, money, sensual gratification.

Yet there's another kind of desire that has a much deeper dimension. It represents the yearning of the human spirit for something more substantial than the fleeting satisfactions materialism or sensualism would offer. When this kind of heartfelt yearning turns in the direction of God, seeking with pure motives a higher purpose in life, it even becomes a prayer.
