Liturgy - the Splendor of Truth, the Soul of Christian Life - Pope Benedict XVI, November 4th Message

Hope is indelibly engraved in the human heart because God our Father is life, and for eternal life and beatitude we are made. Every child born is a sign of trust in God and man and a confirmation, at least implicit, of the hope in a future open to God’s eternity that is nourished by men and women. God has responded to this human hope, concealing Himself in time as a tiny human being.

— Pope Benedict XVI
Homily, First Sunday of Advent 2007
