Pop-Up Catechesis: Our Hearts Are Restless

Pop-Up Catechesis with Joe Paprocki

One of the things that I get a kick out of when watching our grandchildren is seeing how restless they can get—and knowing that eventually we will return those restless children to their parents to deal with! On a spiritual level, we never really outgrow that restlessness. We continually seek rest or fulfillment in any number of things. In reality, as St. Augustine famously wrote, “our hearts are restless, Lord, until they find rest in you.” In this episode of Pop-Up Catechesis, we prepare for the Feast of St. Augustine on August 28 and explore the reality of restless hearts.
