This gives me hope ...

“Where do you look for your life? Forward or behind? May the Lord grant you the grace to leave things behind, even those which you consider precious in this life, and may he allow you to look ahead, where Christ is waiting for you, for a glorious meeting that will open the gates of eternity.” - Gus Encina, pilot on the flight carrying the Brazilian Soccer team.  More here.
Gus was the father of three children.  He carried along an image of the Child Jesus as a remembrance of the baptism of his youngest child.
