She becomes a “sign of hope and consolation for the pilgrim People of God” (LG 68).
Hope is an active virtue. It does not cultivate illusions. Hope turns towards what is definitive, towards the new heaven and the new earth where justice reigns. At the same time, hope invites us to make a commitment here and now, in the construction of a more just world, a “civilization of love.”
