Lord, you invite us to a conversion to hope.
Even in the midst of our own despair,
You call us to become signs of hope in a
world of sin and suffering.
Help us to be open to the gifts you give us so freely.
Help us cultivate and nurture the seeds of hope within
ourselves, our families, and our communities.
Let us celebrate the growth of hope,
no matter how fragile a seedling it may be.
We trust in You to guide us as we turn
towards the building of the Kingdom of God
in the hope and the joy that is the
ground of our faith.
