Daily Advent Reflection: December 15th

The Christ child comes, like every other child, to give the world a message. What message have I come to give?” — Anthony de Mello, S.J.

One of the key messages of the Advent season is always the message of hope. For Christians, hope has a distinctive theological meaning. It is not a synonym for wish or expectation, as in “I hope the rain stops” or “I hope to see you soon”. Hope transcends any particular desire I may have. This is because Christian hope is based on God and on what God can do, and not based on any dream of my own. Someone once said that our calling as Christians is to be full of hope but free of our own expectations. Hope can survive the death of any particular expectation. One of the best descriptions of hope I know was given by Teilhard de Chardin, the French Jesuit theologian and scientist. “This is my faith”, he wrote in one of his letters. “The future will always be more beautiful than the past.” He could say that because Christian hope is based on God, and not on anything less. And God has the final word on the future.
—Rev. William J. Bergen, S.J., Senior Priest
