Welcome Mission 850 ~ We're glad you're here!
Saint Paul admits that not everything is rosy in our world. We are beset with afflictions. But our sufferings are not the end. Our sufferings build endurance, our endurance builds character, and our character leads to hope, and hope will always last. In his first letter to the Corinthians, Paul asserts that faith, hope, and love remain. In this reading, he mentions all three virtues as well, and each traces its origin to the Trinity.
