Principles and Practices - July 12

Our Lady's Hope

From faith springs hope, which is a joyous expectation of future glory and of the means whereby it is to be acquired.

Who has ever hoped for the future glory of Paradise with expecta­tion so calm, so well assured as that of Mary, who gave birth to the Author of that glory?

Who has ever trusted to the loving providence of our heavenly Father with greater confidence than Mary did, who was the daughter of that Father?
