Does anyone know any good books written about God's love or the gift of joy from a Catholic perspective that aren't "hippiesh" (for lack of a better term)

You know something that will make you want to actually get out of bed in the morning for a change.

Preferably written over 50 years ago, preferably in the public domain :P

OK, so C. S. Lewis wasn't Catholic. Still, I think you should read Surprised by Joy. Or, at the very least, see the film Shadowlands, which was based on the book and starred Anthony Hopkins and Debra Winger as C. S. Lewis and Joy Davidman, who shook Lewis out of his complacent life and faith.

Shadowlands is not based on Surprised by Joy, which was written well before Lewis ever met Davidman.
