By Hope We Are Saved

The pope's new encyclical, Spe Salvi (Saved by Hope) was released today. American Papist has links to other hosts of the encyclical (in case the Vatican site is slow) as well as commentary.

The title comes from Sacred Scripture:

Rom 8:22-25 We know that the whole creation has been groaning in travail together until now; 23 and not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. 24 For in this hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? 25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.

For more on the virtue of hope, see the following articles: Pax Christi,
