Joy without Sadness and Sadness without Joy

VanYou see that, in this world, joy without tears is also sadness, and that sadness without joy is even more unbearable. As a result, if we do not know how to change sadness into joy, and to offer this joy to God, our life will be so burdened under the weight of sadness that our soul will lose all interest in the spiritual life.
Little Brother Marcel Văn CSsR (1928–1959)
