Serving the Word: 19th May

FRIDAY 19th MAY 2023

John 16, 20-23a:

“Your sorrow will be turned into joy… your heart will rejoice and no one will take away your joy”.


Difficulties, moments of pain, loss of illusion, failed projects, broken dreams… and so many other things, struggle in our lives to rob us of our joy.

But nothing and no one can take it away from us if our eyes and our hearts are focused on Jesus.

With Jesus Christ, Pope Francis tells us, joy is always born and reborn.

Jesus Christ makes us live in the arms of the Father.

Living in the arms of the Father is the same as living in love.

And to live in love is to live in joy.

To feel loved by God is something so great and causes such great joy that this feeling overcomes all sadness and makes us live through difficulties with serenity and strength without losing the joy of having Christ with us.

Live today and always the joy that Jesus Christ gives you and gives us.

Good day to you.
