Human life is a mixture of joy and sorrow

O Lord, you have been our refuge, from generation to generation; from age to age, you are. Cf. Ps 89.1-2

Most of human life is a mixture of joy and sorrow, pain and pleasure. Even the worry and sorrow brought on by serious illness in a family member is often balanced by the closeness of the members in those moments or by the love and care shown by the neighbours.

Fr. Graham Bouwer OFM
