Joy Battista

"Joy Battista" stands for the Joy of John the Baptist at the presence of Christ.

"And how have I deserved that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For behold, the moment that the sound of thy greeting came to my ears, the babe in my womb leapt for joy." Luke 1:43-44

This blog is dedicated to all who seek the Joy of Christ's presence in their own lives.
This blog is also dedicated to the unborn, for John the Baptist was an unborn when he leapt for joy at the presence of Jesus who was also unborn at the time.

Pope John Paul II on "Love"

"To imitate and live out the love of Christ is not possible for man by his own strength alone. He becomes capable of this Love only by virtue of a gift received.

As the Lord Jesus receives the love of his Father, so he in turn freely communicates that love to his disciples:

'As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Live on in my Love.' (John 15:9)"

— Pope John Paul II on "Love"
Veritatis Splendor, 1993
Thanks for the Quote Pope Francis!
