No matter how bleak the chapter of our lives may look today, because of the life and sacrifice of Jesus Christ, we may hope and be assured that the ending of the book of our lives will exceed our grandest expectations. "Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him." God will wait with open arms to receive those who give away their sins and continue in faith, hope and charity. And to all who suffer --- to all who feel discouraged, worried, or lonely --- I say with love and deep concern for you: Never give in. Never surrender. Never allow despair to overcome your spirit.
Embrace and rely upon the Hope of Israel, for the love of the Son of God pierces all darkness, softens all sorrow, and gladdens every heart.
