Joyful or Sour?

Thursday greetings on this feast of Saint John Paul II.

Just wanted to share what I found to be a rather funny photo taken during Pope Francis' papal visit to the United States.

In this photo, one can see the joy of the Gospel emanating from his Holiness. Not so much for the security agent . . .

Reminded me of Pope Francis' remarks about how Catholics sometimes can look like or seem like "sourpusses."

Look around you at Sunday Mass this weekend. Are you surrounded by joyful people or sourpusses?

I am headed to Boston later today for some family time and also to give a two-day workshop on the RCIA at Our Lady of Fatima Parish in Sudbury, MA, pictured here. Doesn't this just look like the perfect New England church?

 I am looking forward to spending two intense days of study with my Massachusetts "peeps."

If you haven't yet taken a look at WLP's resources for the Jubilee Year of Mercy, please do so today. There has been much interest in these fine resources for parishioners and for those responsible for parish communications regarding the jubilee year.

Gotta sing. Gotta pray.
