    Do you understand the true spiritual meaning of hope?�

    Hope is the theological virtue by which we desire the king- dom of heaven and eternal life as our happiness. It is found when we place our trust in Christ’s promises and rely not on our own strength, but on the help of the Holy Spirit. Hope, when seen in this way, doesn’t set its sights purely on the things of this world but on the promises of God to come. Hope always is linked with faith and love. Often our hope can be- come too self�focused and something that is only about me and things that matter to me. Christ’s resurrection reminds us that it is not ultimately for this purpose. What is the rea-

    son for your hope? Our Easter season provides the op-

    portunity for us to again assess whether it is the king-

    dom of heaven and life eternal or something else. �����

    The Power of Prayer� “For me, prayer is a surge of the heart, it is a simple look turned

    toward heaven, it is a cry of recognition and of love, embracing

    both trial and joy.” �

    �St. Therese of Lisieux, Manuscritis autobiograohiques, C25r.�

    Prayer is a vital component of our spiritual lives. Jesus Christ taught us this throughout his life here on earth. It can be found in many places in all 4 gospels how Jesus was always “going off, alone, to a deserted place to pray.” Prayer was so important to Jesus that he taught his apostles it. When Jesus openly entrusted to his apostles the mystery of prayer to the Father, he revealed to them what their prayers and ours must be. What is new about the prayer that Jesus taught the apostles is to “ask in his name.” Faith in the Son of God introduces the apostles into the knowledge of the Father, because Jesus is “the way the truth, and the life.” John 14:6. Faith bears its fruit in love: it means keeping the word and the commandments of Jesus, it means abiding in the Father. In this new covenant, the certitude that our petitions will be heard is founded on the prayer of Jesus.�

    St. John Damascene once wrote, "Prayer is the raising of one’s mind and heart to God.” De %ide orth. 3, pg 24. We raise our hearts to God from the heights of praise and thanksgiving to God or from the very depths of our hearts in desperation, anger, or deep sorrow. Nonetheless, we pray because of we have faith in an all loving, all compassionate, and all powerful God who hears our prayers and will answer them. Yet, doubt and discouragement can set in when those prayers aren’t answered. However, in prayer, it is important to have a heart of faith knowing that, “God wills that our desire should be exercised in prayer, that we may be able to receive what He is prepared to give.” St. Augustine, Ep.130�

    Joy in Suffering.�

    1 Peter 3:15-18


    Sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts.�

    Always be ready to give an explanation�

    to anyone who asks you for a reason for your hope,�

    but do it with gentleness and reverence,�

    keeping your conscience clear,�

    so that, when you are maligned,�

    those who defame your good conduct in Christ�

    may themselves be put to shame.�

    For it is better to suffer for doing good,�

    if that be the will of God, than for doing evil.�

    For Christ also suffered for sins once,�

    the righteous for the sake of the unrighteous,�

    that he might lead you to God.�

    Put to death in the )lesh,�

    he was brought to life in the Spirit.�
