"Be happy for I, the LORD your God am happy" ?

In a recent article in the Idaho Catholic Register (10/17/08), Fr. William Taylor complained that his "deep ... desire [is] to keep everybody happy and, as a result, too often nobody is happy."  I might humbly suggest that perhaps his disappointment with his parishioners' moods might be alleviated by recalling that his vocation as a priest is not to make men happy, but holy.
