God loves a cheerful giver
We are now still on the Fourth Chapter of Gaudete et Exsultate.
#127 "With the love of a father, God tells us: 'My son, treat yourself well... Do not deprive yourself of a happy day' (Sir 14:11,14). He wants us to be positive, grateful, and uncomplicated....we should remain resilient and imitate St. Paul: "I have learned to be content with what I have." (Phil 4:11). Saint Francis of Assisi lived by this; he could be overwhelmed with gratitude before a piece of hard bread, or joyfully praise God simply for the breeze that caressed his face."
So, let us go and be full of His joy today for Christ is truly risen and is in each of us. We will never get used to or grasp fully this Divine indwelling!
