Reflecting on today's Gospel, I was mostly struck by the attitude of the person who made the great dis-covery, re-velation, apo-calypse (from-hiding): it was "out of joy" that the person sold everything and bought the field. Remember what St. Teresa of Avila said? "From sad saints, deliver us O Lord." And St. Ignatius, "A religious can always be joyful." We can't live the demands of the Gospel unless we first have the joy of the Gospel.
