Quote of the Day On Joy

17 Jun

“Joy, deeper than happiness, is a virtue that finds its foundation in the knowledge that we are loved by God.  For Christians, the knowledge that Jesus has been raised from the dead is a cause for rejoicing, even in tough times.  This does not mean that suffering does not bring sadness.  Of course it does.  But suffering is not the last word–in Jesus’s life nor in ours.  And that knowledge can lead us to a deep joy. ”  – James Martin, SJ

This quote is from the book “Between Heaven And Mirth – Why Joy, Humor and Laughter Are at the Heart of the Spiritual Life.
