Something to think and pray about this week
Every human being can meet God. This happens all the time, even though most people are unaware of it. Christians believe that experiencing deep joy has to do with experiencing God’s presence. This is especially true for joy that leaves a good aftertaste following the event that caused the joy. You can experience that joy while praying or in the Church but just as well at work, in the kitchen, in a museum or walking in nature. That joy can be strong. It is often quiet and almost unnoticeable. Joy that continues to resonate says something about where and how God is present in a person’s life.
