God cares enough to constantly remind people throughout the Holy Scriptures that He loves all people and in turn, a desire for the love of the Father is inscribed on every human heart. As the Catechism of the Catholic Church reminds us,
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:
The dignity of man rests above all on the fact that he is called to communion with God. This invitation to converse with God is addressed to man as soon as he comes into being. For if man exists it is because God has created him through love, and through love continues to hold him in existence. He cannot live fully according to truth unless he freely acknowledges that love and entrusts himself to his creator (CCC 27).
