Through the "miracle of grace," the faithful are able to be vessels for God's will, overcoming their earthly desires while being truly themselves, said Cardinal Francis George of Chicago, Ill.
He explained that the contrast of sin and grace exists within each human person, and we must seek to "have deep desires" that move beyond our worldly inclinations and towards the eternal.
"We must pray for the desire deeply, so that what God desires, so much so that he sent his only son as our savior, will be our desire as well."
Cardinal George delivered the homily during Mass on August 7, the second day of the Knights of Columbus 2013 Supreme Convention, which was held in San Antonio.
