In this 13 minute podcast, Sonrise Morning Show host Anna Mitchell Interviews Dr. Italy on Advent as a season of Hope. What precisely is Scripture talking about when it tells us that hope is one of the most important things a Christian needs? And what does hope have to do with Advent?
Hope is, according to St. Paul and the Catholic Church, one of the three theological virtues. We hear a lot about the other two – faith and love – but when is the last time anyone has heard a good homily on hope?
In this podcast, Dr. Italy explains what the virtue of hope is, how is differs from what we commonly refer to when we talk about hope in everyday life, and how to cultivate this important virtue during the Advent season, which is actually an entire season dedicated to the theme of hope.
