“The joy of God has gone through the poverty of the manger and the agony of the cross; that is why it is invincible, irrefutable. It does not deny the anguish, when it is there, but finds God in the midst of it, in fact precisely there…

What matters is this joy that has overcome.  It alone is credible; it alone helps and heals.”  ~Dietrich Bonhoeffer
