Dr. William Mattison, a former professor in CUA’s School of Theology and Religious Studies, expresses in the video below from the summer of 2015 his joy anticipating Pope Francis’s visit to Catholic University in the fall of 2015. Dr. Mattison also discusses what Pope Francis says about joy in yesterday’s reading, “A Joy Ever New.”
Dr. Mattison says that God welcomes us back even when we get caught up in lesser things and lose sight of what life is really about. He also says that lots of different kinds of joy are all signs of God’s presence. What advice would you give for remaining mindful of the joyful signs of God’s presence?
