Faith, Hope and Love

From Wendy Farley’s The Wounding and Healing of Desire: Weaving Heaven and Earth: “Faith is the power to trust that the Divine Eros is intimately bound to us even when we are in trouble and doubt. Hope is the power to live in and toward deeper goods than our addictions and terrors show us. Charity, caritas, is the most fantastic power of our soul: the ability to love others with the same urgency and delight with which we care for our own pains, pleasures, goods, and sorrows. Caritas is the power toward which all virtues strive and the power that guides them on the path of true virtue.”
