‘Anyone who does not know God, even if he/she entertains all kinds of hope is ultimately without hope, without the great hope that sustains the whole of life.’ ~Pope Benedict
This piece of wisdom offers plenty food for thought. It’s not something that was made up in the heat of the moment but was given great reflection and thought. We often search for hope in so many places and often perhaps in the wrong place. Many think that hope can be bought but money also has its limits. Can money buy real and lasting friendships? Can it buy love? Can it buy the freedom that simplicity brings? Can it buy laughter, honesty, genuineness and the freedom to be the best that God has created us to be? God is indeed the one who can bring us all these and so much more besides. With God we can have so much and without we simply have so little.
