Amen. And in this ever-more-busy and cranky day and age, we don't go amiss to ask Him for an increase of joy, too--simply joy, despite whatever is going on. His joy puts everything into perspective, and feeds all around us as well as ourselves. Our joy, an offshoot of gratitude, gives Him pleasure, too. We can't find His joy without seeking it; some form of true daily communion is needed for that finding, too. One marvels that any of His can go singing to their deaths, or dropping flower petals onto His crucifix from their sickbeds..unless one has tasted their joy.


Thanks, dd, for this powerful reminder of the help available to us at all times. I think it's so important for us to entrench ourselves in one or more of the ways you describe, re the variety of ways in which spiritual advocacy may come to us.
