Okay, I’m excited. Most of you will have heard the news already, but it seems that the next encyclical is ready to go (as soon as it is translated into Latin from the original German and then into English and every other language). The title? “Spe Salvi” (“Saved by Hope”). Read all about it here on Rocco Palmo’s blog. An encyclical focusing on Christian hope is to be welcomed, especially following the first one on Love.
Those who know me will also know that one of my favourite sayings (usually quoted in conversations relating to the future of the Catholic Church): These three abide: Faith, hope and love. And the greatest of these is…HOPE!
