The joy of God is forgiving! It is the joy of a shepherd who finds his lost sheep; the joy of a woman who finds her coin; it is the joy of a father who receives again the son who was lost, was dead and has come to life again, has come back home. Here is all the Gospel! Here is all the Gospel, here is all Christianity! 

But look that it is not feeling, it is not "buonismo"! On the contrary, mercy is the true force that can save man and the world from the "cancer" that is the sin, evil, moral, and spiritual. Only love fills the voids, the negative chasms that evil opens in the heart and history. Only love can do this, and this is the joy of God!
