The Joy of Love
Families are meant to be happy together and to share joy! My parents used to plan little joys for us and one of the best summers was when my Dad decided to plan an excursion for us each day of his vacation. We went to all the interesting sites and I still feel the joy of the exploration of Tom Sawyer's cave.
The Pope in his "The Joy of Love" says
we can see that the word of God is not a series of abstract ideas but rather a source of comfort and companionship for every family that experiences difficulties or suffering. For it shows them the goal of their journey, when God "will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain any more" (Rev 21:4).
