Jn 15:9-11

Those who believe are drawn into the mutual love of Father and Son through Jesus’ love. This love is not without trial and suffering but through that suffering come great joy. Pope Francis likens Christian joy to the joy of a mother embracing her child for the first time after laboring the child to birth.

Remembering those times when suffering turns to joy is important. That memory provides hope when it seems hopeless.
