Are You Single? Do you feel the ache?

Are you single? Do you feel the ache? Find out how to be joyful and peaceful as a single person!

Our hearts were made for You, O Lord, and they are restless until they rest in you.  ~St. Augustine of Hippo

It is impossible for any created good to constitute man’s happiness. For happiness is that perfect good which entirely satisfies one’s desire; otherwise it would not be the ultimate end, if something yet remained to be desired. Now the object of the will, i.e., of man’s desire, is what is universally good; just as the object of the intellect is what is universally true. Hence it is evident that nothing can satisfy man’s will, except what is universally good. This is to be found, not in any creature, but in God alone, because every creature has only participated goodness. Therefore, God alone can satisfy the will of man, according to the words of the Psalms (102:5): “Who alone satisfies your desire with good things.” Therefore, God alone constitutes man’s happiness. (Summa Theologica Part 2. Q.1. Article )
