Human suffering

Fourth Sunday of Lent.

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ:

The man born blind in the Gospel passage proclaimed this Fourth Sunday of Lent presents us with the difficult question of the suffering of the innocent and evil. Why does God who is all powerful and infinitely good allow evil to exist and the innocent to suffer?

Evil actions are possible because we were created free. God gave us free will and respects it scrupulously. In doing that, he assumes a risk, the possibility that we may abuse our freedom and do what is objectively evil. We can sin because we are free, yet, paradoxically sin destroys our freedom turning us into slaves of our passions and miseries. God offers us all the assistance we need at every step of the way to do good and avoid evil. He speaks to us through Scripture, through the Church, through human mediations and lavishly offers to us his grace and his mercy that we may always and everywhere do good. However, in the mysterious interaction between grace, freedom and sin that takes place in our hearts, it is possible that we reject the grace of God and end up doing what is objectively wrong, displeasing to God and sinful.
