All my desire is before You, O Lord.
For our desire is not before human beings, who can not read our heart. Therefore, let your desire be always before God; and your Father Who sees in secret will repay you. For your constant desire is your prayer; and if your desire is constant, so is your prayer constant.  -From St. Augustine’s commentary on Psalm 37

(Augustine Day by Day, Catholic Book Publishing Co. page 178)

My comments:
In the season of Advent or in any season, our desires tell a lot about us, and about our relationship with Jesus.  Do we desire material things or do we desire that Jesus should enter our hearts and fill us with His grace?
