This is especially the case for many struggling to cope at the moment. For those experiencing anxiety for family members or frustration, joy may be overwhelmed by grief and anxiety. Let us pray that everyone may experience something of the peace and joy of the risen Christ.
Because in the resurrection Jesus has overcome death and sadness, he has risen into a new life. Let us invite him into our lives to walk with us on life’s journey. Let us welcome joy into our lives.
