Happiness Level Four – Ultimate Good
Happiness Level Four is perfect. It is unlimited. It is without boundaries or conditions. It is a happiness that never ends nor ever wavers. It will never disappoint us or fall short. It will never leave us with a yearning or hope for more. It is kept in Heaven for us as our eternal reward. And the more we possess God on Earth, the happier we will be in this life, because we are custom designed for God.
The desire for God is written in the human heart, because man is created by God and for God; and God never ceases to draw man to Himself. Only in God will he find the truth and happiness he never stops searching for.
– Catechism of the Catholic Church
PRAYER: Lord, I believe in you: increase my faith. I trust in you: strengthen my trust. I love you: let me love you more and more. I am sorry for my sins: deepen my sorrow. I worship you as my first beginning, I long for you as my last end, I praise you as my constant helper, and call on you as my loving protector.
