Minister's Note for May
Christian hope is not the belief that everything always comes our right… that is optimism. Optimism is about tomorrow. Christian hope is about today. Christian hope is understanding that during these hard times, God embraces us. This Easter of all Easters… it is a time of hope.
It is hope that will sustain us today and through the long haul. It is hope that will sustain us in the darkness. It is hope that will be a bubble that ‘floats’ above the chaos. It is in hope that we connect with each other and remain steadfast in prayer. It is spirit of hope that pervades our father Francis’s joy in all things. It is this hope, this Christian hope, that we are called to live – individually and as a community. We are all in this together; let us together share Christian hope.
Pace e Bene +
