Christ, my joy!

What this coming of Christ among us really means, above all, is the joy of God in the world, the joy of God catching fire in humanity, which is hungry for joy.  In a thousand ways people ask today, where can we find joy? Church of Christ, you alone know the answer; say it out loud: Christ, my joy!

Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Ascension Day Sermon, 1933
