Year of Hope

"Jesus, the hope, rebuilds everything. It is a constant miracle that rebuilds everything He does in my life, in your life, in our lives. Christ who rebuilds all things and the most wonderful things of Creation is the reason for our hope. And this hope does not disappoint us, because He is faithful. He cannot deny himself. This is the virtue of hope."   ~ Pope Francis
