Believing in Joy
I know that a sad saint is a sorry saint and that really nothing can take away our supernatural joy. I have always felt drawn to joy and loved learning as a novice that joy was a sign of the Good Spirit at work; I have found that joy is contagious, too. But what really strikes me now is that I have a vocation within my vocation to give joy to God. As I think I have mentioned before, I have this Christmas card framed on my prayer shelf that has a youngster piping a song of joy to the Infant Jesus. I just feel that is what I am called to do and one way to feed joy is to be grateful.
That is enough to think about for today. Just remember that Jesus says in John 15:11: "I have said these things in the world so that they may have my joy made complete in themselves."
