HOPE

Friday next is the feastday of Blessed Edmund Rice. The blessing of the memory of a person like Edmund Rice is that it calls us to live with his spirit in our world today.

As Pope Francis recently said: "A single individual is enough for hope to exist, and that individual can be you." and he also says that “we need memory, we need courage and we need creativity.” Surely these qualities were present in abundance in Blessed Edmund. May we all abide in that living memory.

i just copy/pasted your quote to reply to a friends post

Francis seems to be speaking of her although she would probably not think so
she would not seem the "holy type" to many
but she gives hope to many people that she touches
Francis always seems to have the wider community in mind when he speaks rather than just "Catholics" or even "Christians".
