Short daily meditation

19 December
Throughout our life, we are beset with situations hard to explain; they sometimes include oppositions, departures, breaks in communion. And then we ask ourselves: “Will we let our joy fade away?” No, joy can remain even in times of difficulty. Instead of burdening others with our sadness, the joy of our heart brings happiness to those around us.
