Joy seems to be the key to everything. Joy in the Faith, joy in parenting which leads to the Faith, joy in the family which attracts others to the Faith – making the family truly missionary. Joy, not happiness. Joy with peace which faces every day, every situation, every trial in faith, saying, “Jesus, I trust in You.”
Joy is a gift and not something I fabricate within myself. So joy must come from communion, a communion with Love.
