Saint Paul tells us to rejoice always in the Lord. The Church sets aside two days called Rejoice Days—Gaudete Sunday in Advent and Laetare Sunday in Lent. Two days to remind us that there is reason to rejoice despite war, poverty, mass shooting, and weather disasters among many other things that make us question “Rejoice?” The answer lies in the prepositional phrase “in the Lord.” Down through the centuries of suffering we have reason to rejoice. We are the Church. We are Christ’s Bride. We rejoice in Christ. Always.
