Many thanks dear father for this deep meaning of our désire. This will be really help me to begin the Season of advent….
Thank you, Fr. Jim. Yes, God desires me, and I will continue to ‘work’ on my desire for Him. Have a very blessed Advent and a Christmas filled with joy and happiness: filled with GOD. Love and prayers, DORIS
