Joy
by Mother Theresa

Joy is prayer-
Joy is strength-
Joy is love - Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls. He gives most who gives with joy.
    The best way to show our gratitude to God and the people is to accept everything with joy. A joyful heart is the inevitable result of a heart burning with love.
    We all long for heaven where God is but we have it in our power to be in heaven with him right now - to be happy with Him at this very moment. But being happy means:
    Loving as He loves
    helping as He helps
    giving as He gives
    serving as He serves
    rescuing as he rescues
    being with Him for all the
    twenty-four hours,
    touching Him in his distressing disguise.
