No Hope Without Tribulation

Second Sunday of Advent 2023
With great hope we are reminded of eternity during this season.  All virtue builds on nature, and the same is true of the virtue of hope.  Hope cannot exist without difficulty and tribulation.  We hope in God, not despite our sufferings, but in light of our sufferings.  The saints took great joy in their tribulations because they knew God wished for them to live the life of His Son.  Adversity opens the eyes which prosperity holds shut.  We must fight the good fight in this life if we wish to be glorified in the next.
