Quote of the Day: Pope Francis on Human Evil

Quote of the Day: Pope Francis on Human Evil November 24, 2015

A great quote from Pope Francis, with a hat tip to NCR:

Faced with the tragic events of human history, we can feel crushed at times, asking ourselves, ‘Why?’ Humanity’s evil can appear in the world like an abyss, a great void: empty of love, empty of goodness, empty of life. And so we ask: how can we fill the abyss? For us it is impossible; only God can fill this emptiness that evil brings to our hearts and to human history. It is Jesus, God made man, Who died on the Cross and Who fills the abyss of sin with the depth of His mercy.”

— Mass proclaiming St. Gregory of Narek a Doctor of the Church, April 12, 2015
