TOP POPES’ QUOTES ABOUT GOD’S GOODNESS
1. The Catholic Belief In God And The Atheist’s Position Might Not Be So Far Apart
“I believe in God, not in a Catholic God, there is no Catholic God, there is God and I believe in Jesus Christ, his incarnation. Jesus is my teacher and my pastor, but God, the Father, Abba, is the light and the Creator. This is my Being. Do you think we are very far apart?”
Pope Francis to atheist newspaper editor of La Repubblica – Eugenio Scalfari, 2013
2. We Can Truly Grow In Our Communion With God
“The love story between God and man consists in the very fact that this communion of will increases in a communion of thought and sentiment, and thus our will and God’s will increasingly coincide: God’s will is no longer for me an alien will, something imposed on me from without by the commandments, but it is now my own will, based on the realisation that God is in fact more deeply present to me than I am to myself. Then self-abandonment to God increases and God becomes our joy.
Pope Benedict 16th, God is Love, 17
