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.

1. State the Situation.
2. Communicate your feelings.
3. Deliver the bottom line.
4. Use an open-ended question.
