If we walk in hope, allowing ourselves to be surprised by the new wine that Jesus offers us, we have joy in our hearts, and we cannot fail to be witnesses of this joy. We have a mother who always intercedes for the life of her children. Jesus has shown us that the face of God is that of a loving father. Sin and death have been defeated. Christians cannot be pessimists! In constant mourning. If we are truly in love with Christ and if we sense how much he loves us, our hearts will “light up” with a joy that spreads to everyone around us.
– Pope Francis
