Quote of the day, 5 May: Père Jacques

Père Jacques commented on evil during a preached retreat in the fall of 1943: "The profound problem of evil is a scandal that keeps many people far from God and drives many others away from him... Take war, for example, with its deliberate destruction of cities and its unjustifiable slaughter of the elderly and the innocent, of women and children..."

Père Jacques of Jesus was the French Carmelite whose bravery during Nazi occupation inspired the film, 'Au Revoir, Les Enfants'
