On Hope

We rated this book:


In a series of small chapters, On Hope delivers a calm and thoughtful message of optimism. This slim volume outlines the meaning of and the need for hope in our ever-changing world. The collection of fourteen statements, ranging from “Reasons for Hope” to “The Language of Hope” to “Rejoicing in Hope,” each separately espouse hope as the answer in any trying time.

While it may seem the book is geared solely to Catholics, there are messages for any person of faith. All chapters feature Biblical ties as passages from scripture pepper the text, and Christ’s love and God’s abiding protection are common through-lines. As Francis writes, “hope teaches us to smile in order find the path which leads to God.”

If you find yourself in need of focused meditation on how to remain hopeful in the face of any obstacle, On Hope will serve that need and quiet your spirit.
