Pope Francis wants the third aim of this year to be hope. Amid all the problems and woes that surround us, we are called to practice the virtue of hope. Our hope is based on Jesus, the One who loves us and who is all-powerful!
The expectations for this year are worth reflection. The firt is joy. The Pope tells us that the old saying will always be true: "Where there are religious, there is joy." It is God who fills our hearts with happiness!
The second expectation is "to wake up the world"! More on that tomorrow.
