FAITH, HOPE AND LOVE


FAITH, HOPE AND LOVE  

These three infused supernatural virtues, given to me at Baptism, are interwoven in my life like the petals of a flower. Faith tells me that what I believe in is true; Hope tells me the One I believe in is faithful; Love tells me the One I believe in is mine.  


FAITH is the virtue of the threshold; it makes me see in darkness now what I shall see by vision in eternity.  


HOPE is the virtue of the road; it assures me that I posses NOW what I shall possess in eternity.  


LOVE is the virtue of the goal; it permits me to experience NOW what I shall delight in for all eternity.

by Mother M. Angelica
