Hope, My daughter, is the anchor of life.
In the same way as the anchor steadies the ship in the sea,
hope sustains the soul for Me.
All in the present is done with hope for the future;
hope is the food of mankind
and stimulates hearts impelling them to generous tasks.
Human hope is uncertain and futile, deceitful and brief,
whereas divine hope is true, immovable and infallible,
because it leans on My word
and it supports the one who hopes
and rewards the perseverant.
This holy virtue is necessary for you, My daughter,
so that with valiant heart you may aspire to the crown
and, may obtain it through every difficulty.
To those who hope in Me and do good to the end,
I have promised them, as My children, eternal life,
[doing so] mercifully and as My promised prize
that they have to faithfully receive for their merits and good works.
So that your own miseries will not be enough
to diminish your trust in Me,
the smaller you recognize yourself to be,
the much more motivation you have to trust in Me.
For your self-doubting to be good,
it ought to produce trust in Me.
Reject, as dangerous, all mistrust that engenders despondency…
Throw yourself into the bosom of My providence.
As a child in the lap of his mother,
he who rests in his Father’s arms will not perish…
