For most of us, happiness means to feel good. In the ancient world, however, it meant to be good.
“Sometimes we can imagine happiness will come when were done with our work or the challenge,” says Father Mike Schmitz of the Diocese of Duluth, Minn., and a speaker at the upcoming Made for Happiness Assembly. “What we recognize is we are rarely happier than when we are in the midst of a noble pursuit. To find out what God’s plan is for one’s life and to pursue it in the midst of trials, dangers and setbacks is real happiness.”
