Wednesday of Hope – Hope in the New Year

Happy New Year!! May we continue in Hope.

 

The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater.

– J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Wandering

Not all who wander are lost.
– J.R.R. Tolkien

Wednesday of Hope – Our Greatest Hope

Then I saw that wisdom excels folly as light excels darkness.
– Ecclesiastes 2:13

Christmas is the Feast of Christ Our Light coming into the world. During this season, we often refer to Jesus as Emmanuel, which means God With Us. In this our Hope rests.

Incomprehensible Holy Mystery

God is always doing something more. Incomprehensible holy mystery is always giving more, revealing more, communicating more. The only limit to that giving has been creation’s capacity to receive.

Judy Cannato, Field of Compassion

Wednesday of Hope – Don’t Be Afraid

This is the world. Beautiful and terrible things will happen. Don’t be afraid.

– Frederick Buechner

God in All Things

The day of my spiritual awakening was the day I saw–and knew I saw–all things in God and God in all things.

– Mechtild of Magdeburg

Wednesday of Hope – It Is Time for Healing

I know these are scary, uncertain,  hurtful times, but I really wish  people would stop talking about  what a trash fire the world is.  Our world is a wounded relative,  not a hopeless ruin,  and we’re called to help heal  the injuries we’ve inflicted  on our kin.
