Upon our hope, therefore, depends the liberty of the whole universe. Because our hope is the pledge of a new heaven and a new earth, in which all things will be what they were meant to be.
— Thomas Merton, No Man Is an Island, Sentences on Hope
If my hope
Is the toe hold
The universe needs
To stay on the face
Though barely a seam,
May it remain
As the One
Who made it
Of my soul.

One reply on “The liberty of the universe”
Hope is our toehold, indeed. It is the crevice, the seam we wedge our self into as the wrath of the evil one sandblasts the surface with disease, catastrophe and the vileness of humanity. The Lord allows this as the consequence of our choice, but God forbid that we confuse the wrath of Satan with the righteous wrath of the Lord. We remember the rainbow as God’s promise to repress His wrath until the time of His choosing when His Son will judge the world.
