How can we be inundated with Joy?

Especially during the Jubilee of Mercy as well as the Advent and Christmas seasons?

Special consideration for the scrupulous and the despondent.

Peace and Goodwill.

Purity of heart and intention.

“The more I give, the more happiness I find.”

  • Bl. Charles de Foucauld (when asked what his secret to happiness is)

Spend more and more time adoring our Lord Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament.

I grew up being dragged from shopping mall to shopping mall in search of gifts for family and friends by my parents throughout Advent. I vowed that when I grew up I would not do that. So my kids enjoyed quiet Advent seasons, decorating the tree, enjoying cookies by the fireplace, family and friends over for dinner. That was joyous.
