Joy continued

Here is the second point under Joy is Necessary in the Conference of Reverend Mother de Lescure:

2. Because joy is the condition of all progress. We all have need of a certain measure of joy, of dilation to give a full harvest. It is required through our human necessity whatever be the progress attained. We know from experience what a powerful weapon it is in our role as educators. As soon as joy is given to the children they are won. Joy is moreover and especially the atmosphere for interior progress; that is why the devil strives to snatch it from us. It is also indispensable to preserve us against his attacks if we are going to go far along the path of the interior life.

Tomorrow, I will copy the third point.
