In the Cross is Joy of Spirit

?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Easter greetings of peace and joy!

“We are not expecting utopia here on this earth. But God meant things to be much easier than we have made them. A man has a natural right to food, clothing, and shelter. A certain amount of goods is necessary to lead a good life. A family needs work as well as bread. Property is proper to man. We must keep repeating these things. Eternal life begins now. “All the way to heaven is heaven, because He said, ‘I am the Way.’ ” The cross is there, of course, but “in the cross is joy of spirit.” And love makes all things easy.”

-Dorothy Day, On Pilgrimage, Catholic Worker, 1948
