Pope Francis: Jesus Leads Us to Happiness

Pope Francis's Sunday Angelus address, on the Transfiguration, offered these hopeful words:

Jesus’ way always leads us to happiness; do not forget this! Jesus’ way always leads to happiness. There will always be a cross and trials in the midst, but in the end it always leads to happiness. Jesus does not deceive us; he has promised us happiness and he will give it to us if we go on his ways.
 

With Peter, James and John we will also go up today on the mountain of the Transfiguration and pause in contemplation of Jesus’ face, to receive his message and translate it into our life, because we can also be transfigured by Love. In reality, love is able to transfigure everything. Love transfigures everything! Do you believe this?
