Reasons for hope

Greetings from others

In a confusing time, when much is being demanded from all of us, I would like to reflect with you on the theme of “hope.” It is an extremely important theme. When you hope, you live with expectation. A beautiful image of hope is a pregnant woman. She knows it is coming. She doesn’t know exactly what will come but she organizes her life according to what is to come. The Christian community is like such a woman. We don’t know exactly what will come, but we believe that what we are doing now has meaning because of Jesus, because of what He has done for us, but also because of the promise of his return.

How can we exercise hope when life is sometimes discouraging or even devastating? See and hear next Sunday, when we will focus on a passage from the first letter of the apostle Peter (1 Peter 1 : 1 – 13).
