We end our celebration of Catholic Schools Week 2021 with a heart of hope 💛 Hope has been a beacon for us all and it continues to guide us as we look forward to better times 🙏
Scripture: ‘I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I hope’ (Ps 130:5).Reflection: Hope brings all sorts of other good things with it – optimism, positivity, enthusiasm, courage, resilience, motivation. It is the gift that keeps on giving. And we can give that gift to the others in our wider network or community to help them get through challenging times. It’s not always easy, but we can work on it, develop it, pray for it, spread it and show it in the way we relate to others. It can be a light to show us the way, the energy to keep that light burning brightly, a vehicle to carry us on our way, a pit stop where we can refresh. It does not demand repayment. As poet Emily Dickinson wrote of hope: ‘never, in extremity/It asked a thing of me’.
