Love and Joy

   A manifest sign of love for God is a heartfelt gladness in God, for we rejoice in what we love. Likewise, love of God cannot exist without joy, and whenever a man feels the sweetness of the love of God within his heart, he rejoices in God. For so sweet a virtue as love cannot be felt without joy.
