Yesterday's Gospel reminded me of the importance of being joyful in my faith.
Years ago, I asked my Aunt Kay why she converted to Catholicism. She replied, "Catholics were the happiest people I knew. I wanted to find out why."
Mmm, makes one think. Am I a joyful Catholic? Am I happy to be a child of Christ? Do I allow my joy to shine forth? Do people look at me and wonder, "What's special about her that she is so happy? Could it be her faith that makes her life so worthwhile?"
I think I need to work on that.
