The Blues

“If Sadness comes knocking at your door, tell him that you’ve already made a commitment to Joy to whom you plan on being faithful your whole life long.” – Pope Francis

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, our feelings and moods go up and down and we can’t always control them. But deep down we can be joyful and at peace knowing that God our Father loves us and that we are trying to follow his plan as best we can.

And if today you are feeling a little blue, ask God to send you someone who needs some cheering up.
