The Pope’s First Tweets

So today it happened. On the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Pope Benedict XVI sent seven tweets to his Twitter followers, today numbering just under a million at 926,000. His 140 character thoughts focused on the Year of Faith, Jesus, and ensuring that God is the “solid rock” on which our lives are built.  I wasn’t quite sure if his fourth tweet — “How can faith in Jesus be lived in a world without hope?” — was stating as a given that the world is “without hope” or that if he was asking how faith in Jesus can be lived in the world if one doesn’t have hope? I presume the latter and that this is just an examply of a slightly misplaced modifier.
