Every Human Heart is Made for Joy
Every Human Heart is Made for Joy!
This beautiful phrase, “Every human heart is made for joy” was penned by Pope John Paul II.
He also said, “Faith is a source of joy.” C.S. Lewis clearly felt the same way when he wrote,
“Joy is the serious business of heaven.”
Joy is a word that resonates with Catholic Eldercare staff. It’s something we want to see in our residents every day, as we strive to bring it into their lives as we nurture their ageless spirits. Famed poet Maya Angelou once said, I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you make them feel. This is most certainly true.
We recently co-hosted our Fall Festival, a celebration of the start of the season that also gives seniors and their families the opportunity to learn about services available to them in the community. At the event, we captured joy on many faces, as people enjoyed food, music, and conversation with friends, old and new. Here are some joyful snapshots from our event:
We want to leave you with some more joyful quotes, and an invitation to “Make a joyful noise unto the Lord,” and spread joy!
“Joy is the holy fire that keeps our purpose warm and our intelligence aglow.”
“If you can find joy in your heart, you can heal any moment.”
