Advent Hope

"Hope is not wishful thinking but a certainty that comes with living our faith day by day." quote from Start with Jesus by Julianne Stanz - against a leafy background

"Never lose hope; continue to believe, always, in spite of everything. Hope opens new horizons, making us capable of dreaming what is not even imaginable." - quote by Pope Francis next to book cover On Hope and tree background

Hope is a theme of Advent, so we today share two quotes on hope for your reflection this season.

The quote art is from a presentation by Julianne Stanz, author and Director of New Evangelization for the Diocese of Green Bay. Access the presentation, “Bearers of Hope,” at the Loyola Press website.

For further reflection, read Rebecca Ruiz’s Advent article, Hope Opens New Horizons.


  1. Currently, I’m reading the Book of Proverbs (KJV) and this morning, in Chapter 13, these words from 13:12 seem apt: Hope deferred maketh the heart sick, but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.
