May the Lord free us

“This is the first stone to be moved aside this night [of the Resurrection]: the lack of hope which imprisons us within ourselves. May the Lord free us from this trap, from being Christians without hope, who live as if the Lord were not risen, as if our problems were the center of our lives.” — Pope Francis

Reflection: Hope is one of the theological virtues, a habit in the Christian life that is a gift from God. One a scale of 1 (none) to 10 (complete), how would you rate your current hope in the freedom and promise of the Risen Lord? What problems are you dealing with right now? How are you bringing God into these situations, if at all?
