Reflection for the Week - February 4

Eyes burning and seared by the present views and circumstances of life blurs a passion for the possible of a different future, yet God has promised to renew the world and we must trust and act on his ability to do so. Learning to perceive the imprint of the future on the present is no easy task. We sometimes stray from the visionary and realistic, blindly immersed in the apparent unchanging status quo that only recycles everything into the same. Imaginary orientations rooted in God’s manifestations of hope, by contrast, open up and broaden our horizons toward change, and help us to look and see again.
