Dating can be "heavenly" for Catholics

Young Franciscan author says getting to know God is like dating

Here is a story explaining getting to know God in down-to-earth, even earthy, terms. Any link between this approach and Theology of the Body?

Getting to know God is akin to entering a dating relationship, according to Franciscan Brother Daniel P. Horan. When two people already like one another, they devote copious amounts of time and energy to learning everything they can about each other and joyfully anticipate spending time together, he explained.

Brother Horan, a member of the Order of Friars Minor, is the author of "Dating God: Live and Love in the Way of St. Francis," published by St. Anthony Messenger Press. At 28, he is not very far removed from the more traditional understanding of dating.
