Reasons for Hope | Razones para la esperanza

[God has shown us over and over ...] God has not abandoned his people, and he has not left them to be vanquished by even, because he is faithful.


These [actions of God] are the reasons for our hope. When everything seems finished, when, faced with many negative realities, and faith becomes demanding, and there come the temptation which says that nothing makes sense anymore, behold instead the beautiful news brought by those swift feet: God is coming to fulfill something new, to establish a kingdom of peace. God comes to bring freedom and consolations. Death will not triumph forever; there is an end to suffering. Despair is defeated because God is among us.


[Dios nos ha mostrado una y otra vez ...] Dios no ha abandonado a su pueblo, y no ha dejado que sean vencidos por él, porque es fiel.


Estas [acciones de Dios] son las razones de nuestra esperanza. Cuando todo parece terminado, cuando, frente a muchas realidades negativas, y la fe se vuelve exigente, y llega la tentación que dice que ya nada tiene sentido, he aquí las hermosas noticias traídas por esos pies rápidos: Dios viene a cumplir algo nuevo, para establecer un reino de paz. Dios viene a traer libertad y consuelo. La muerte no triunfará para siempre; Hay un final para el sufrimiento. La desesperación es derrotada porque Dios está entre nosotros.
