Hi, guys —

  • What is the deepest human desire?


  { What is the deepest human desire? }

Mike replied:

Hi Daniel,

Thanks for the question.

We have by nature many human desires but probably the two most common desires to men and women is:

  • our appetite for food, and
  • our appetite for sex

Both are good, when used properly, but these are just earthly human appetites.

The deepest human desire, one that can only be obtained through a well-formed Catholic Christian conscience, is our appetite for God, the Eternal Appetite.

That's my angle. My colleagues may have another.
