We know that Christ has won our salvation for us…We have reason to be joyful! If only we faithfully accept God’s great & loving gift. Let us, therefore, be faithful to the One who has loved us unto death. The Church pauses & reminds us, during our Lenten journey, to celebrate this victory won for our salvation: “Laetare Sunday” or, in English, “Joy Sunday.”
Be Faithful! Be Joyful!
We know the outcome…
We know that God (Father, Son, & Holy Spirit) love us.
All we have to do is: Love God in return, & love our neighbor (be kind to all, be patient with all, do not think ourselves better than others…).
Today is a good day to reflect on how faithful, how joyful, & how loving we are. Do we need to make changes?
“My being proclaims the greatness of the Lord, my spirit finds joy in God my Savior” (Lk 1:46:47)
