us, lights up our way to the future and enables us
joyfully to advance along that way on wings of
hope. Thus wonderfully interwoven, faith, hope
and charity are the driving force of the Christian
life as it advances towards full communion with
God. But what is it like, this road which faith
opens up before us? What is the origin of this
powerful light which brightens the journey of a
successful and fruitful life?
