Embracing Hope TV

Embracing Hope, by Lea Mallett
WHEN the Lord put a vision in my heart of a webcast to speak His "now word," I had a sense it would be at a time when major events were unfolding, or about to unfold in the world. Wow…
And so, finally the time has come for the second phase of this mysterious apostolate: to prepare the Church for the times which are here and coming through an internet webcast. You can imagine my surprise when the Holy Father made the following appeal last week:
Young people in particular, I appeal to you: bear witness to your faith through the digital world! Employ these new technologies to make the Gospel known, so that the Good News of God’s infinite love for all people, will resound in new ways across our increasingly technological world. —POPE BENEDICT XVI, Vatican City, May 20th, 2009
To view the first of this weekly webcast as well as the introductory video, go to www.embracinghope.tv. Please take a moment to pray for this endeavor. May Christ fill you with His grace, hope, and peace.
We cannot hide the fact that many threatening clouds are
gathering on the horizon. We must not, however,
lose heart, rather we must keep the flame of hope
alive in our hearts…
—POPE BENEDICT XVI,
