Live Joyfully and Courageously

Live joyfully and courageously, at least in the upper part of the soul, amidst the trials in which the Lord places you. Live joyfully and courageously, I repeat, because the Angel who foretells the birth of our little Saviour and Lord, announces singing, and sings announcing that he brings tidings of joy, peace and happiness to men of good will. So that there is nobody who does not know that in order to receive this Child it is sufficient to be of good will. - Saint Padre Pio
