On Wednesday Pope Francis said Christian hope, rather than coming from the empty promises of other human beings, is rooted in Christ's promise to never leave us, and to stay by our side until the end of time.
"How long, by comparison, will God's care for mankind last?" the Pope asked April 26. "The Gospel's answer leaves no doubt: until the end of the world!"
"The heavens will pass away, the earth will pass away, human hope will be erased, but the Word of God is greater than everything and will not pass away."
"There will be no day of our life where we will cease to be a concern for the heart of God," he said, adding that "God will certainly provide for all our needs, he will not abandon us in times of trial and darkness."
