Seek the Lord!

Isaiah 55:6

Seek the LORD while he may be found, call upon him while he is near.

God is near in every good thing.  He is nearer still in the creature called man and woman.  He comes even closer in good men and women, closer still in his saints, closer still in the greatest saint, Mary and closest of all in the person of the God-Man Jesus Christ.  Draw near to these (and especially to Jesus, who is present in all his saints and most especially in the Holy Eucharist) and he will draw near to you.
