The joy that setteth aside labour disperseth those things which labour gathereth.
For gladness doth always arise from a kind of fruition and happiness, which
happiness banisheth the cogitation of all want, it needeth nothing but only the
bestowing of that it hath, inasmuch as the greatest felicity that felicity hath
is to spread and enlarge itself; it cometh hereby to pass that the first effect
of joyfulness is to rest, because it seeketh no more; the next, because it
aboundeth, to give. The root of both is the glorious presence of that joy
of mind which riseth from the manifold considerations of God's unspeakable
mercy, into which considerations we are led by occasion of sacred times.
