Together in Faith: “Hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.” Romans 5:5
Hope is fundamental to our Christian lives. As St. Paul says, the Spirit fills us with hope because God’s love has been poured into us through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. In good times and in bad, let us live as people of hope.
