Spiritual Joy

Saint Bonaventure says: “A spiritual joy is the greatest sign of divine grace dwelling in the soul.”

Saint Honoratus said: “This joy in one hour of prayer in the silence of the night, makes a soul forget all the labors of the day; being wrapt in God, she expiates the depth of this world of heavenly joys, which no tongue can express.”

“Aside the times when you need the ministrations of a professional physician, your six best doctors are sun, water, air, exercise, diet and joy. They are always waiting there for you. They cure your ills and do not cost you a cent.” Achieving Peace of Heart, by Fr. Irala, page 109.

We need to be joyful as little children, obedient to the Lord.
