Hope for a New Year

At a Vespers service on New Year's Eve, Pope Francis spoke of hope for the coming year, hope embodied by the "Silent Majority." While the Pope's words were directed most specifically to life in Rome, his words speak to hope for a world that hungers for the common good.

Pope Francis suggested that the concerns of ordinary people are not necessarily reflected in the flamboyance of media coverage nor in the blustering of politicians, but in eloquence of those who serve their communities not in noisy words, but in quiet deeds. He mentioned with gratitude those who navigate the world of crumbling roads and failing infrastructures with patience and care, aware of others on the same roads, buses, trains and planes that they travel. He expressed praise for those who respect public places, who are attentive to the elderly, who offer a helping hand to people in stress and difficulty.

Pope Francis expressed his thanks to parents, teachers, and all educators who form children and teens to be good citizens, to be aware of and contribute to the good of all. He praised their efforts to engender in our young people a sense of belonging and ownership in our communities, who encourage them to be involved in the reality that surrounds them.

The Pope found real encouragement from those people who may face economic difficulty and hardship and still work quietly to make things better for everyone, without bitterness, without resentment, but with a simple sense of solidarity.

Looking back over 2017, Pope Francis observed that God had given us a year whole and healthy but humans once again used it up and wounded it. “Wars are the most flagrant sign of this persistent and absurd pride,” he said. “But so are the small and large offenses against life, against truth, against fraternity, that cause so many forms of human, social and environmental degradation.”
