One of my students here at the Newman Center, he is crushing hard on a girl. He can barely sleep. He can barely eat. Sharing all of this with me, I just asked him simply, “Have you seen any reciprocation on her part? Do you think she likes you?” And he responded very honestly, “Uh, I haven’t even hung out with her yet.”
Okay, so here we go. This is the first step. You need to show this girl your desires. You need to be able to have a conversation with her. In the Gospel for this Sunday – very appropriately – Jesus is speaking in the same way to us, “Seek and you will find, ask and you will receive, knock and the door will be opened to you.” That is our Lord. That we can actually say to Him in our prayers what we are seeking, what are we desiring. When was the last time that you actually shared your desires with the Lord? This Sunday, just go share with Him your desires. Go do it. Seriously. Now.
