“In hope we were saved. But hope is not hope
if its object is seen; how is it possible for one
to hope for what he/she sees?

And hoping for what we cannot see means
awaiting it with patient endurance.”
(Romans 8:24-25)

“Grant to us all, Lord Jesus,
that in the soul’s long winters
we may wait patiently,
grow imperceptibly,
in the rhythms of your love
and so enter into your peace.

Give us grace to wait patiently,
without doubt,
without impatience,
without anxiety,
for the morning of resurrection.”
(Caryll Houselander)

“What matters in the long run: it is not only that we are hopeful but that we act hopefully” (Albert Nolan, O.P, of South Africa).
