Dear fellow Catholics, life can be crappy, but it’s not like improvement is impossible. Oh, and optimism is neither naivety nor being delusional at all. 🙂
l Somehow the average Catholic does not associate joy with holiness but believes holiness is synonymous with misery. I have written articles on the theology of joy but in this post I will simply overwhelm you with quotes from the saints and the Bible, all affirming the fact that joy is at the core of our spirits when we live in, with, and through Christ.
