My first thought when I saw this pop up on my Google Reader page was”Ooo, missionary. Let’s read this one”. Of course though, coming from the pope, there is far more in the title than I gather on first glance. A missionary is someone who goes somewhere there is a need, where there is some sort of void that needs to be filled. Here, it is the need for joy, a need that goes unnoticed so often, because we allow its absence to feel normal. Crazy thing is, we are being individually called to aid this mission. If you have time, it’s definitely worth a read. This link is to the reader’s digest version, but there is a link at the bottom of the page to the full thing.
