Sadness is Not a Christian Attitude? Say What? – CC020

In today’s episode of Cassidy Comments I offer my response to the idea that “sadness is not a Christian attitude” as mentioned in an article from the website Vatican News quoting Pope Francis.

What is the Pope saying?  Is he implying that Christians cannot/should not be sad?  Is that even possible?

I dig a little deeper and check out some scriptural references and uncover the relationship between sadness, joy and what Jesus and the Pope have to say about it.
