"God made us for joy. God is joy, and the joy of living reflects the original joy that God felt in creating us." (St. John Paul the Great)

Feast of St. Francis de Sales

http://andy-lee.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/francis-de-sales.jpg

During the course of the day, recall as often as possible that you are in God's presence. Consider what God does and what you are doing. You will see His eyes turned toward you and constantly fixed on you with incomparable love. Then you will say to Him, "O God, why do I not look always at You, just as You always look at me? Why do You think so often of me, O Lord, and why do I think so seldom of You?" Where are we, O my soul? God is our true place, and where are we? (from St. Francis de Sales, Introduction to the Devout Life -- a must read, by the way)
