Life, after all, is a struggle, a journey in uncharted space, an exercise in both gain and loss, joy and sorrow.

 No life consists of nothing but success and satisfaction, security and self- gratification.

Failure and disappointment, loss and pain are natural parts of the human equation. Then what? What use is an alleluia then, except perhaps to encourage some kind of emotionally unhealthy self-deception?
