Father Edmund's Desk

Our young people who have just received the Sacrament of Confirmation will tell you that Joy is one of the fruits of the Holy Spirit. But nowadays people do not often associate Christians with joy. They are more likely to associate us with long faces, with carrying the Cross and with suffering. But we should be people of joy because our faith gives us hope; we know who we are, why we are here, and where we are heading. We know that in the long run there is no need for us to ever be afraid or anxious, because no matter what happens, good or bad, God's love for us is absolutely reliable: more trustworthy than the best things that can ever happen to us, more powerful than the worst things that can ever happen to us. We know that this life is not all there is. We know that God's plan is for us to be with Him in His everlasting Kingdom. We should rejoice.
