Lights of Hope

Starry Sky. Painted by Samantha Rochard

“Life is like a voyage on the sea of history, often dark and stormy, a voyage in which we watch for the stars that indicate the route. The true stars of life are the people who have lived good lives. They are lights of hope. Certainly, Jesus Christ is the true light, the sun that has risen above all the shadows of history. But to reach him we also need lights close by—people who shine with his light and so guide us along our way.”

– Pope Benedict XVI, Spe Salvi (Saved in Hope), No. 49

Who are your stars in this life; your lights of hope?
