The motto for this blog is:
"Rejoice always, pray constantly, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you."
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, Revised Standard Version, Catholic Edition.
Yes, even in the midst of the deepest sorrow, the worst pain, we are to rejoice. If we don't know why, God does.
