Balthasar’s Hope

I posted on Balthasar’s “Hope” that all may be saved a while back. Since then, I ran into this prayer of the Church apropos of this topic whether there is a founded hope that all may be saved.

Collect for Good Friday Office: “O God, from whom Judas received the punishment of his guilt, and the thief the reward of his confession: grant unto us the full fruit of Thy clemency; that even as in His Passion our Lord Jesus Christ gave to each retribution according to his merits, so having cleared away our former guilt, He may bestow on us the grace of his Resurrection, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. Amen.”
