The heavenly Father's reward

Mass again at Gasson Hall, presided by William Russell, SJ - philosophy man - who gave a lovely homily on prayer, almsgiving, fasting. During the reading of the gospel I was struck by the phrase "you already have your reward", and was wondering what might be the reward promised by the heavenly Father. Bill Russell cast light on that: the joy of giving. Or, perhaps, as Jesus says in the gospel of John: My Father and I will come and dwell with you." And the theme of joy that echoes also in the letters of John.
