Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini, SJ, writes of three attitudes that show Paul's transfiguration. He also speaks of two modes of action which I will talk about tomorrow. I think this has made a big impact on me because I am reflecting on how I manifest the same in my own life.
The first attitude is joy and inner peace. Paul had an overflowing joy. This joy comes from God; he could not possess it on his own. (See 2 Cor 4:8-10) "We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed but not driven to despair... so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies."
This is true joy that deals with every kind of burden.
I think I will stop here today and continue with Paul's second attitude tomorrow.
