The Light of Hope
“Hope opens new horizons, making us capable of dreaming what is not even imaginable.” -Pope Francis
Alexis Salazar is a Young Adult Core Team Member at Mater Dolorosa Passionist Retreat Center in Sierra Madre, California.
Prayer for Hope
we continue this season of Advent
in great anticipation
of the Coming of Your Son, Jesus Christ.
We have experienced the suffering of all
Your creation. We have seen the pain,
the violence, the sorrow and the grief
that is in our world.
Fill us with the hope that is in Your Son.
Grant us the strength to persevere
in following Him; in loving You
and loving our neighbor
and tending to our “common home.”
In Jesus’ Name, we pray, Amen.
Call to Action:
Name a hope you have for yourself, your family, your community this Advent. What can you do to make it a reality?
