OUR VIRTUE OF THE MONTH OF MAY IS JOY

Joy is a central theme in the Scriptures. Indeed, the Gospel, which is to say the very inception of Christian sacred history, virtually begins with the announcement of joy: "Rejoice!" was the first work spoken to Mary by the angel Gabriel to the Good News that the Word was to become flesh. (Luke 1:28)

Jesus' teachings are intended to cause us joy. "These things I have spoken to you," said Jesus to his apostles, "that my joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full."

(John 15:11) "Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete." (John 16:4)

Joy is a fruit of the Spirit, that Holy Spirit of Truth (John 16:13), the Spirit of Love, against which there is no law. (Gal. 5:22-23)

Perhaps the most famous is St. Paul's commandment to rejoice: "Rejoice in the Lord always; again I say, rejoice." (Phil. 4:4)

What is this Christian joy? In its essence, Christian joy is supernatural in origin, which is to say it is something beyond our natural powers. Christian joy is anchored in Jesus Christ. "Christian joy," wrote Pope Paul VI in his apostolic exhortation on joy Gaudete in Domino, "is the spiritual sharing in the unfathomable joy, both divine and human, which is in the heart of Jesus Christ glorified."

Christian joy is therefore, a grace, a gift of God. "Joy is a gift from God," "a grace we must seek," observed Pope Francis in his sermon. Like the heart of Jesus in which it is found, like the Holy Spirit from which it comes, like sanctifying grace which justifies us, it "fills us from within." It is the product of our adoption as sons of God, of our divinization and at the same time our true humanization.

Saint Damien of Molokai will be our model.

Prayer to St. Damien of Molokai


St. Damien, brother on the journey, JOYful and generous missionary, who loved the Gospel more than your life, who for love of Jesus left your family, your homeland, your security, your dreams, Teach us to give our lives

with a joy like yours, to show MERCY to those in need, to celebrate Eucharist

as the source of our JOY. Help us to love everyone with JOY & MERCY.

Amen.

Students will be recognized at the School Liturgy on

Friday, June 16, 2017 at 9AM.
