Our God is a God of Joy

Our God is a God of joy !!! Our God is a God who saves, who rescues us from darkness and sin! The joy of the Lord is our strength !

Our prayer - our service of God - our honouring Mary should give birth to joy within us . . .that deep sense within of belonging, both to Mary and our Mother the Church.

At this morning prayer at Prime of the Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary we read.

. . .jucundos facias suae interesse commemorationi.

(Of Mary) we may find joy in taking part in her commemoration.

For wherever Mary is, in whatever way we honour her, are reminded of her, we are always brought to the reality of the Incarnation and that her yes bought Christ into the world. The deeper we submerge our hearts into the word of God, the deeper will be our joy !! So let us offer our hour this morning with joy !
