WATCH: Are you joyful? #JesusIS

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 12/09/16

Sr. Miriam James Heidland invites us to ask God into those places in our lives that need joy

Sr. Miriam James Heidland explains how Jesus is joyful as the #JesusIS series continues this Advent. She reminds us that joyful people radiate peace, beauty, well-being and that we see Jesus living like this in the Scriptures. Yes, He’s a man of sorrows, but not of self-pity. No matter the obstacles He faced, He remained joyful because He knew who He was and where He was going. Sister Miriam invites us to ask God into those places in our lives that need joy.
