One Good Thought: Rise Above in Joy

“For virtue is a light and buoyant thing, and all who live in her way ‘fly like clouds’ as Isaiah says, ‘and as doves with their young ones’.”
+St Gregory of Nyssa

When we do what is right, we feel lighter and freer, but when we’ve done something we shouldn’t, we have a burden on our heart, like we’re carrying a heavy weight.

How can you free yourself of the weight? If you are sorry, and can admit it, go to confession and God’s mercy will free you, like a gliding dove floating on a gentle breeze in the sky.

Lord, forgive me for my sins and help me to set them aside so I can rise above them in joy.
