116. Panta elpízei. Love does not despair of the future. Following upon what has just been said, this phrase speaks of the hope of one who knows that others can change, mature and radiate unexpected beauty and untold potential. This does not mean that everything will change in this life. It does involve realizing that, though things may not always turn out as we wish, God may well make crooked lines straight and draw some good from the evil we endure in this world.
Maybe hopeful people get a bad rap/rep for being pollyanna types. I think they shouldn’t. We just live in a cynical age. Cynicism has infected the church no less than the culture.
Remember: Amoris Laetitia is online here.
