“...will become joy”

Life is not always happy, especially nowadays.

Tragically, many people seek happiness in immorality and – from the outside – they look like they’re having fun.

We know, of course, that immorality is a deadly trap.

In the Gospel for the Thursday of the sixth week of Easter (John 16:16-20), our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ says this:

Amen, amen, I say to you,
you will weep and mourn,
while the world rejoices;
you will grieve,
but your grief will become joy.
