In today's Gospel reading from Luke 5, the scribes and Pharisees said to Jesus, "The disciples of John the Baptist fast often and offer prayers, and the disciples of the Pharisees do the same; but yours eat and drink." Jesus answered them, "Can you make the wedding guests fast while the bridegroom is with them? But the days will come, and when the bridegroom is taken away from them, then they will fast in those days." We today are so fortunate that the Lord is always with us; we can even receive him daily in the Holy Eucharist. For me, the "J" in the name Jesus certainly stands for "Joy."
