The Hound of Heaven

I fled Him, down the nights and down the days;
I fled Him, down the arches of the years;
I fled Him, down the labyrinthine ways
Of my own mind; and in the mist of tears
I hid from Him, and under running laughter. Link
How is this related to Catholic Apologetics?

It is truer to say that God is chasing after me than I him. In my weakness I have fallen short. I have been selfish and turned away from God. But when I find that the selfish desires that I am chasing do not lead to my happiness I always find that God is there. Ready to take me back.
