Discovering Joy During Advent

How can we form ourselves to be more active, conscious recipients of the grace of joy, especially when external circumstances are more likely to lend themselves to stress, fatigue, and suffering? Here are three tips.
PRAY – Ask God for the particular grace to receive His gift of joy more actively and consciously in your daily life.
IMMERSE YOURSELF IN GOOD EXAMPLES – Ask advice from, and surround yourself with, people who are visibly living in a true spirit of joy. You can glean wisdom from the lives of the saints or from family, friends, and mentors.
MAKE SMALL ACTS OF LOVE – The Catechism tells
us that joy is one of the fruits of charity (CCC 1829). If the “lens” of joy is cleansed and sharpened by charity, then there is no better, more active way to seek out joy than by seeking out chances to love.
