“Rejoice in the Lord always. I say it again, Rejoice!”

Philippians 4:4

Basic to Sister Mary Jo’s works was the ever-pervasive power of prayer. The verse “Rejoice in the Lord always” was frequently on her lips and in her letters. She spread joy. She had a ready smile for anyone she met along the way with a word about Jesus, and a closing reminder to pray the mercy prayer, “My Jesus mercy.” Today she truly rejoices in the Lord with whom she walked and talked all of her days.
