Hope, in the Christian sense, is often misunderstood. It is not the same as optimism or presumption. It is not the blind faith that we will go to heaven or the escapist way to avoid the troubles of this world. It’s not the virtue we need to see the present moment with more positivity. It’s more personal than that. In this video, Fr. Mike Schmitz explains exactly why.

Te Rau Aroha

Tēnei mātou, this is us 

No te Rau Aroha, from Te Rau Aroha 

Te Rohe Pīhopa o Te Papaioea the Diocese of Palmerston North 

E karanga atu nei the call which goes out 

E tū atu nei that stands 

Tuku reo aroha for the love (also a reference to our place Te Rau Aroha) 

Huia, tuia, tui, tuia that gathers us and binds us  

Tuia, hui e taiki ee binding us  

Hui e, Taiki e. Together. Amen.  

 

Music by Jenny McLeod and words by Korty Wilson – October 2018
