Teach me how to rejoice your heart, Christ Jesus...
When the 70 disciples returned to the Master from proclaiming the Good News, healing the sick, raising the dead and releasing the captive, St. Luke records that Jesus ‘rejoiced in the Holy Spirit’. I would do anything to make Jesus, who is lover of my soul) rejoice! Anything? Do my thoughts, words and deed rejoice the soul of Jesus? Christ Jesus, today teach me how to rejoice your heart.
I lift up my soul unto the Lord. (Psalm 119)
Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls.St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta
