The joy of the Lord is our strength. ~Nehemiah 8:10

It is wrong to be sad. Christians cannot be pessimists. Christians must always nourish in their hearts the fullness of joy. Try it, brothers and sisters; I have tried it many times and in the darkest moments, when slander and persecution were at their worst: to unite myself intimately with Christ, my friend, and to feel a comfort that all the joys of the earth do not give – the joy of feeling yourself close to God, even when humans do not understand you. It is the deepest joy the heart can have. ~Oscar Romero
Glorify the Lord with me;
together let us praise his name.
~Psalm 34(35):4
