Overview

Pope Benedict XVI's second encyclical, Saved By Hope, ("Spe Salvi" in Latin) takes its title from St. Paul, who wrote, "In hope we have been saved". In this special deluxe hardcover edition of the work, the Holy Father continues a line of thought he began with his first encyclical, God is Love. Love and Hope are closely related in the spiritual life. Love of God involves hope or trust in God. According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, "The virtue of hope responds to the aspiration to happiness which God has placed in the heart of every man". Hope enables us to look to the next life, but it also inspires and purifies our actions in this life. Pope Benedict considers modern philosophies and the challenges of faith today in light of the virtue of hope. "Confronted by today's changing and complex panorama, the virtue of hope is subject to harsh trials in the community of believers. For this very reason, we must be apostles who are filled with hope and joyful trust in God's promises. In contemporary society, which shows such visible signs of secularism, we must not give in to despair." — Pope Benedict XVI

    giving hope and courage for tough times

    pope benedict xvI little bestseller 'saved in hope' is a most inspirational little book.the holy father takes a look at some of the troubling and tough issues that seem to be hurtful at times but this book offers courage and hope and the pope uses scripture and commentary to not give in to despair and to always turn to christ. I feel I have found much peace with what I have read and this true man of God I think will unload many burdens off peoples lifes. great gift idea for a friend or family member.
