Quote of the Day (Fr. John J. Burke, on Joy as the ‘Power and Presence of God’)

“The joyous man is the strong man—ready to sympathize: to appreciate: to help: a comfort and a light to others. Into a world where there is a surplus of sadness, of despondency and of despair, he brings something of the power and presence of God that in turn warm and cheer the hearts of men. Joy is the power and presence of God—the interior sense that we live in Him.” —Attributed to Monsignor John J. Burke, C.S.P. (1875-1936)

(Thanks to Pat McNamara for suggesting the quote.)
