My next book will be entitled UNBROKEN WINGS OF HOPE. It is a long study about Saint John Paul II and the Venerable Francis Xavier Nguyen Van Thuan as witnesses and prophets of hope. It contains 33 chapters, each of them shows the readers a key to the kingdom, and another step in the Road of Hope. They show the sinners and the pilgrims on the Road of Hope — as we all are. They show how those pilgrims walk on with humility, endurance and determination towards the final goal that is the Home of the Father. What tools or equipment they pick up to facilitate their journey. They are not traveling alone. The Church, that is also on her pilgrimage, walks with them. Towards the end of their journey, they are confronted with their past — what they got from their native land, and their native culture, with the future as it appears to them in the Third Millennium, their old age and infirmities, and finally, their death.
I have not finished the book. Actually, I have stopped several times, unable to advance, and tempted to abandon the subject. But each time, I have come back with renewed energy, and new insights. I hope to finish this book by March 2019.
In the meantime, I will try to talk with many, who can in one way or another help me with the final vision of the book.
May Saint John Paul the Great and the Venerable Francis Xavier Nguyen Van Thuan help me in the coming days.
