Matthew Reid - Happiness: Contemplative Influence on Contemporary Culture 
The Christian life is implicitly a life a radical simplicity. It is a calling that is often vastly different than the way of the world. Happiness is not a worldly goal, but an internal striving to live with humility and love. This striving is an internal conversion and a life-long commitment made at baptism--to live in the world, but not be of the world.
-Matthew Reid
