Hope


"The new earth that will some day come will result both from man's endeavor and from God's act in raising it up to a final and complete form. Once we have summoned the courage to entrust ourselves to this hope, however, how can we live? How can we apply it? The power of  hope grows within us by battling against meaninglessness and futility. The vast regions of unbelief all around us; all the mortal weariness of our culture; the absurd with all it powers of persuasion; all of this must be negated, constantly, by our hope."--Hans Urs von Balthasar, You Crown the Year with Your Goodness
