Pope Francis-True joy does not come from things or from possessing
Monday of the Thirty-fourth Week in Ordinary Time
True joy does not come from things or from possessing, no! It is born from the encounter, from the relationship with others, it is born from feeling accepted, understood and loved, and from accepting, from understanding and from loving; and this is not because of a passing fancy but because the other is a person. Joy is born from the gratuitousness of an encounter!
— Pope Francis
