The Virtue of Hope

  • DONALD DEMARCO

In his preface to the Holy Fathers Crossing the Threshold of Hope, Vittorio Messori remarks that John Paul is so impatient in his apostolic zeal that he wants to shout from the rooftops (today crowded with television antennae) that there is hope, that it has been confirmed, that it is offered to whoever wants to accept it.
