Hope and Christ

“The embodiment, at once symbolic and truly fundamental, of the supernatural life in man is the man Christ, “in whom dwells the fullness of the godhead”. He is also the embodiment of our hope: “Christ in you, your hope of glory!” (Col 1:27). (How does it happen that we are so prone to understand Holy Scripture in a vague approximation rather than in the precise meaning of its passages? It is due in part, perhaps, to a decline in the proper dogmatic interpretation of Scripture)” (Faith, Hope, Love, p. 105-106).
