Over a hundred people, from the ages of two to eighty years old, were  

asked the question, “What gives you hope?” From the voices of different  

generations, hear their answers.

Sometimes prayer is a ritual act. 


Today, many of us are greeted by a persistent grayness in the sky around us. The clouds are thick. The sun is hidden.  


Today, some of us feel a dreariness in our souls. 


Today, some of us hurt, but we’re not even sure why. 


And yet, today, there is hope, and it can be found in the simple act of lighting a candle.
