When you’re unhappy, commit an act of love

Lent Reflections with Fr. Robert Barron. I’m just now trying to catch-up with all my reading of the last several weeks. This post from Fr Barron snagged my heart on the way by. Here’s a snippet:

Next time you’re unhappy, here’s what you do: you love. When you’re feeling miserable, write a note to someone who is lonely; make cookies for your kids; visit the nursing home; donate some money to a charity; sign up to help with an after-school program; say a prayer for someone who’s in trouble.
