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.”
“Grant to us all, Lord Jesus,
that in the soul’s long winters
we may wait patiently,
in the rhythms of your love
and so enter into your peace.
Give us grace to wait patiently,
for the morning of resurrection.”
“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).
