Fr Terrance gives the homily at Bloomington, IN on Feb 18, 2022, on how on the 14th Mark of Charity, on how love hopes all things, as he continues his series on the Marks of Charity based on 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Definition expectation of something good

We should go from hope to hope, not pleasure to pleasure

Love believes that no one is hopeless

Faith is opposed to infidelity and hope is security against despair.

People despair because they lose hope

Hope is the assurance of things hoped for.

Head and heart again as in faith

Faith is confidence in God, trust, heart, hope is putting our hope in God, again the heart

Pagans had no hope, "Eat during and be merry, for tomorrow we die"

Epicureans a philosophy of despair, pleasure is the only thing worth living for, like today

We must go beyond this as the Good News of the Bibles tells us of the resurrection

There is something better beyond the grave, this hope is quite central and its foundation

CCC  2662   faith, hope, and charity are the sources of prayer http://www.scborromeo.org/ccc/para/2662.htm

We hope to get good things from Him

To expect prayers of petition

To avoid despair and frustration ask God and Our Lady to give the spirit of gratitude to God for all he has done for us and even the crosses

Gratitude is often the missing key in our lives

CCC 1817 http://www.scborromeo.org/ccc/para/1817.htm

Hope is linked to grace

We often put too much stress on things of this world

Hope puts our hearts in the right place when we hope in God

Love hopes all things
