Monthly Meditation – OCTOBER

“Make an effort to radiate joy, which is the fruit of the Spirit and a characteristic mark of the kingdom of God.  God is joy.  We have no reason to be unhappy.  Christ, wanting to share his joy with the disciples, prayed that ‘my joy may be in you and your joy be complete.’ Jesus must have radiated joy and you should do the same, in your eyes, attitude, the way you walk, the way you listen, and your whole being.”

~ Saint Theresa of Calcutta

For reflection:

  1. Would others say you are joyful?  Would you?
  2. In what specific ways do I radiate joy?
  3. When I speak of my relationship with Christ, can people sense the joy you have in loving him?
