«Jesus himself "rejoiced in the Holy Spirit" (Lk 10:21)»

-Pope Francis, The Joy of the Gospel

Comment from our readers…

Rejoicing in the Holy Spirit can also happen to us. This joy is not like the one we feel after success, good news or a gratifying encounter. This joy is of a different kind. It comes unexpectedly, but can be recognized by it's texture and imprint, the mark it leaves in us. More than a memory, it is a treasure, a fountain where I can draw. Reconnecting with this joy is reconnecting with the Holy Spirit.
