BENEDICT XVI: "EVIL IS NOT LOGICAL, IT IS AN ABUSE OF FREEDOM"

"Evil is not logical, it comes from an abuse of created freedom, as it happened it remains obscure, mysterious." This is what Benedict XVI said in his traditional Wednesday audience before 7,000 faithful gathered in Paul VI hall. Nevertheless, "God is stronger, Evil can be overcome," he said. "Therefore, there are not two principles, a good and a bad one, but only one, God the Creator, the Good, with no shade of evil, and therefore man himself is good, life itself is good. There is only one good source." "Man," explained the Pope, is a creature that can be healed. God has introduced a healing, a pure good, who is the crucified and risen Christ, the new Adam. He set himself against the dirty river of evil. This can be seen even in the river of light made of the many saints and believers who had followed Christ." "We are in Advent and Christ, the new Adam, is shining among us. God entered history as a source of good, but evil forces are still strong. Let us pray Jesus that he may come where violence and injustice are still prevailing and help us be peace makers."
