The Color of Hope

Advent is the spiritual season
of hope par excellence,
and in this season
the whole Church is called to be hope,
for itself and for the world.

The whole spiritual organism
of the mystical body assumes,
as it were, the "color" of hope.

The whole people of God begins the journey,
drawn by this mystery:
that our God is "the God who comes"
and who calls us
to come to meet him.

~Pope Benedict XVI,
First Sunday of Advent 2008
