I’ve been awefully busy as of late so I’ve missed my last two weeks worth of Deep Thought Fridays. I also fell extrtemely behind in my reading of the Catechism in a year. I was somewhere in the vicinity of 30+ pages behind, but thanks to a marathon session and a large glass of tea I am once again caught back up.
SInce I was so behind, I’m not sure if this paragraph was in this weeks readings or not, but I really don’t mind if it wasn’t. During my marathon session this particular paragraph provided much deep thought for me. It is on the topic of how can God allow evil things to happen. Food for thought.
324 The fact that God permits physical and even moral evil is a mystery that God illuminates by his Son Jesus Christ who died and rose to vanquish evil. Faith gives us the certainty that God would not permit an evil if he did not cause a good to come from that very evil, by ways that we shall fully know only in eternal life.
Enjoy your weekend. God Bless.
