Anyone here know French?

  • I need the phrase "holy joy" translated into French.

    For example:

    "St. Philip Neri was known for his holy joy."  Or, "There was an expression of holy joy upon the face of St. Therese."


    Merci!

    Merci!

    “joie sainte” or “la joie sacrée” would be a couple options.  

    There are others (go to DeepL.com, and type in your phrase, and it will spit out half a dozen options; much better than Google Translate).

    Just be aware that in French, they put the modifying adjective AFTER the noun; the opposite from the English language, which places it before.

    Above, the first option is a literal translation of the phrase you are after, but in French, the noun is often preceded by “la” (or “le,” depending on gender, or “les” if plural/many).

    So for example, in French, you never see the word “tradition” alone.  It is always “la tradition” (“the tradition” in English), which sounds/reads awkwardly to us, but you get used to just ignoring the “la/le/les” (except for understanding singular vs plural and gender).
    Romans 5:20 "But where sin increased, grace abounded all the more."

    there are exceptions to that, and this is one of them. It is, I do believe Sainte Joie. Not Joie Sainte.
    But I am open to correction.
