All joy comes through Jesus, Pope tells young Italians

CWN - December 20, 2012

At a December 20 audience with young members of Italy’s Catholic Action, Pope Benedict XVI said that God is a source of joy, a guide in love, and a maker of peace.

"There are many people who bring you happiness,” the Pope told his young audience, but Jesus is the source of all joy. “The more you get to know Him and to enter into dialogue with Him, the greater the happiness you will feel in your hearts,” the Holy Father promised.
