We understand hope as the desire or feeling of expectation for something to happen. There is really nothing as good and soothing as hope when we are looking forward to something.

CELEBRATING THE UNUSUAL KING: HOMILY FOR THE SOLEMNITY OF CHRIST THE KING. Rev. Fr. Boniface Nkem Anusiem PhD.
Long time ago, as a young seminarian, I was posted on apostolic work (missionary internship) to a certain town in the south-eastern part of Nigeria, West Africa.
