Supernatural and natural hope

“Natural hope blossoms with the strength of youth and withers when youth withers… For supernatural hope, the opposite is true: not only is it not bound to natural youth; it is actually rooted in a much more substantial youthfulness. It bestows on mankind a “not yet” that is entirely superior to and distinct from the failing strength of man’s natural hope” (Faith, Hope, Love, p. 110).
