What gives me joy

“The concrete sign that we have truly encountered Jesus is the joy that we show in communicating it to others. And this is not ‘proselytizing,’ this is giving a gift: I give you what gives me joy.” — Pope Francis

Reflection: Joy is a natural response to a true experience of God; love, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control are also fruits of the Holy Spirit at work in a person (see Gal 5:22-23). Where do you see these fruits in your own life? How have you seen others share their encounters with Jesus?
