Of course, being Catholic is a lot of fun, too. We are intentional about fostering a sense of fellowship—koinonia—that comes from the Holy Spirit. We gather for meals, short excursions, and other informal get-togethers
A Catholic cannot help but be happy; sadness should be banished from their souls. Suffering is not sadness, which is the worst disease. This disease is almost always caused by atheism, but the end for which we are created guides us along life's pathway, which may be strewn with thorns, but is not sad. It is happy even through suffering.
-Bl. Pier Giorgio Frassati
