Watch Cardinal Tagle’s Unforgetable Homily on Hope

Hope was the theme of this year’s Mid-Atlantic Congress. This theme came alive in an unforgettable way in the words of Cardinal Tagle, 32nd Archbishop of Manila in the Philippines. His “keynote homily” had the over 1,500 participants sometimes laughing, sometimes wiping away tears, as he unpacked the true meaning of Christian hope. We’re happy to share the video of his homily with you here. Please pass it along to anyone you know who may be in need of these life-giving words of hope.

For reflection: In what sense is hope essential for our mission to evangelize and make disciples of Jesus Christ?
