For Hope That Peace is Possible

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.

Romans 15:13

Jesus I trust in You!ůSpes contra spem! [Hope against hope!] With God nothing is impossible!

What is especially possible is conversion, which can change hatred into love and war into peace.

And so our prayer becomes all the more insistent and trusting: Jesus, I trust in You!

[The Pope Speaks 39/3, 1994, 183]
