How often in life is it the case that we think we need that one more thing. A new house. A new job. A new gadget. A new relationship. We think we need the next new thing that will really fill us, satisfy us. But when we try to fill ourselves with anything that is not God, then things do not work out for us the way we might hope.

Homily given at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish, University City, Missouri. Readings for Today. Listen to our other homilies.
