I agree with you that joy is desirable, as it is the fruit of the Holy Spirit; too often we disregard the injunction to "eat the fat and drink the sweet wine'. Thank you for your enthusiasm.
Thank you Deacon Lamont for this precious site. Our residents even light up at the sound of your voice . I spent 9 hours at work yesterday live streaming services and your homily & Divine Mercy with your family. During this pandemic is sad but this technology helps keep Christ alive. Bob and I re-listen too ✝️
