A World Without Hope

From a post at First Things, an excerpt from Pope Benedict's The Yes Of Jesus Christ:

Optimism is only the facade of a world without hope that is trying to hide from its own despair with this deceptive sham. This is the only explanation for the immoderate and irrational anxiety, this traumatic and violent fear that breaks out when some setback or accident in technological or economic development casts doubt on the dogma of progress.
