This is an interesting article...

I think there is a general reason why this is--tell me if you all agree--the reason why we don't to seem to have joy, is because we don't have external displays of joy because we don't have external displays of penance or preparation (not surprisingly this is the case of Advent and Christmas). We're "even" all the time, there is a word for this...lukewarm. 

The author of the article is right, we do not display joy. However, I think there is more concrete ways to go about this than "have fun." Fun is overrated. I can have fun reading a book. 

If what is said in the Gospel is true, we are at an encampment, an encampment of the most holy War, for our souls. When going to war, one is to prepare, to ready oneself for the sting and clash of battle. One it is to prepare, not to hold his ground, but to continue to march forward against the enemy. A continuous no to evil, and a continuous yes to the good. This requires preparation, Catholics prepare like any good soldier, disciplining his will, through mortification, fasting and abstinence. 

As Catholics we have lost this practice. This is unfortunate. Because a warrior that prepares himself for battle, receives the spoils of battle. Those spoils are our great Feasts, feasts of our Lord and feasts of our fellow warriors, the Saints, and feasts of our great spoils. 

If you wish to be a joyous warrior of the King of kings, you must fight his War. And, being a faithful Warrior, you will sit at his great Feasts, both now and in eternity.

The Roman Pontiff sent these tweets out in a rather unusual format, but once seen as a whole makes sense.

Introduction
I grew up in the hard streets of west Peoria, AZ, usually in the low-level houses in the 200's. After that I moved to a shady park, it was filled with blue hairs and manufactured homes and I was stuck with a community pool and a big-grass-filled back yard. Once I got to high school, I was forced to go to a gangland school where the white kids got busted for buying oregano and everyone else drove brand new cars - must have been making a lot of money from selling oregano. 

After that I was shipped to the Great White North where I was sent to labor for four years in the snow, well actually my dad just paid for my tuition to send me to Northern Arizona University (NAU). 

I planned on becoming a strength and conditioning coach and get my major in kinesiology and minor in nutrition (or try harder and get a double degree). However, I decided to rebel against my father's wishes and transferred to the W.A. Franke College of Business, which was actually a sub-college of NAU and my dad told me to do what would make me happy because he just wanted the best for me and the most important thing is that he loved me. Man is he tough on me.

Every summer, my father kidnaps me and brings me to what I like to call the Devil's Smokehouse. My father puts me into forced labor in the frying hot heat, where the average temperature are in the 100's. Now, when I say "forced labor," I mean he makes me do half the chores and I get to live in his house rent free and eat his food while I get to do whatever else I want, such as taking naps, swimming, watching several TV marathons on separate channels, poker, fishing, poker, fishing, going to hang out with friends.

I grew up in a hard life, and I promised myself that one day...one day I would get a job so I could finally move out of my father's house.

And...that is what I do now!

Right now I am finishing up a double major in economics and finance at NAU. I am looking for a job after I am done with school probably as a loan officer (A.E.) and in the mean time build some what of a writing career. Coinciding with that I plan on making various investments for my holding company into real estate and stocks until I make enough passive income that I can cover my job's yearly salary. 

So, right now I am creating this bio using a short article on how The Resume is Dead, The Bio is King and it tells me I need to tell my "point of view." I suppose most people don't care what my point of view is unless they agree with me. And, well folks I can tell you most don't agree with me, at least not superficially. I am a Catholic and I am a conservative and a American monarchist (meaning that I believe a monarch is best).
