Nothing can detroy supernatural joy
The Pope tells us that hard times may come but "nothing can destroy the supernatural joy that adapts and changes, but always endures, even as a flicker of light born of our personal certainty that, when everything is said and done, we are infinitely loved. That joy brings deep security, serene hope and a spiritual fulfillment that the world cannot understand or appreciate."
#126 "Christian joy is usually accompanied by a sense of humor." The Pope says that ill humor is no sign of holiness....
We receive so much from the Lord 'for our enjoyment' (1 Tim 6:17), that sadness can be a sign of ingratitude. We can get so caught up in ourselves that we are unable to recognize God's gifts."
The underlining is mine!
