First, we recognize sin;
second, we renounce sin;
then, finally we "reach
the pinnacle of joy, and
come to the light of God."
-- Canto One, Divine Comedy
Dante writes that there can be no
direct ascent to the mount of joy . . .
"Christ came to bring joy. . . joy is
the keynote of the Christian
message and the recurring motif
of the Gospels ... go, therefore,
and become messengers of joy!
"

"Prayer to Live Joyfully"
Lord, at times I am overcome with joy!
The world seems such a glorious place and
all the cares of life seem far away.
Thank you for giving us a glimpse of eternity.

I know that such a grand feeling is sure to pass
and that I will be once again be confronted with
the problems and worries of daily life.

Let me realize that true joy never fades,
for it is the gift of Your Spirit made
possible by the saving action of Jesus.
Keep me in Your grace so that I may never
lose that inner virtue of joy!
God Loves the sinner, but
hates the sin . . . that means
He never stopped loving you!
May the Passion and Death of Our Lord
Jesus Christ, the merits of the Blessed
Virgin Mary and all the saints, and
whatsoever good you do or suffering
you endure -- cleanse you of all your
sins,  bring you an increase of grace,
and prepare you for the joys of
eternal life with Our Heavenly Father.


Amen.
