Have you not heard that the Angel of Joy is holier than the Angel of Pain? Yes, the torment of affliction and of yearning, which can regularly be felt even actually, should be there, and we can’t and need not talk it away. In any case, it should be defeated without fail, and along these lines, there is a much holier holy messenger than the one of agony; that is, the one of happiness in God. Meaning, Joy defeats pain without making pain a failure! In other words, accept the Joy of Salvation to fill your life, and every pest or torment shall dissipate! You begin to experience Joy as an infallible sign that God Almighty is ever with you! O yes, Joy is not necessarily the absence of suffering, but indeed, it’s the presence of God! I love to hear that Joy is the echo of God’s life within us (Columba Marmion). Is there any leak in your christian life? Allow Joy to fill you. That’s it!!!
