Divine joy is the essence of life and yet we do not want it, we push it away. How can we live if we are not in God? We may be physiologically alive but, in reality, we have no life within us, for we do not have the Life Who Is God. Love is the key that opens the door to Heaven. Yet we neither want life, nor do we want love. What, therefore, do we really want? Despair, misery and death? Is this what we prefer to have in our lives? For that is all we are getting by our continuing refusal to subject ourselves to our Almighty Father’s divine Life, Love and Joy.
