In our fifth episode we explore the virtue of hope and the role social media can play in spreading hope throughout this great community. This may be our best episode yet. We had so much fun planning and recording this one, and hope you enjoy it. Hope is the theological virtue by which we desire the salvation of ourselves and others. The virtue of hope responds to the aspiration to happiness which God has placed in the heart of every man; it takes up the hopes that inspire men’s activities and purifies them so as to order them to the Kingdom of heaven; it keeps man from discouragement; it sustains him during times of abandonment; it opens up his heart in expectation of eternal beatitude. Buoyed up by hope, he is preserved from selfishness and led to the happiness that flows from charity.
