The Holy Father reminds us, we’ve read the book, and we know how it ends.
From Courageous Priest:
“Human evil and ignorance simply cannot thwart the divine plan of salvation and redemption,” he added.
“There is no reason, then, to give in to the despotism of evil” the Pope said. “Let us instead ask the risen Lord to manifest his power in our weakness and need.”
The Pontiff said that he had been looking forward to this meeting with the bishops of Mexico and Latin America.
“I see this meeting as an occasion to turn our gaze together to Christ, who has entrusted you with the splendid duty of preaching the Gospel among these peoples of sturdy and deep-rooted Catholic faith,” he told them.
The Pope acknowledged the challenges and difficulties facing their dioceses, but added that they are able to move forward with confidence, knowing that the Lord is risen and “that evil does not have the last word in human history.”
