True Power is Mercy and Forgiveness

Pope Benedict celebrated Vespers in the Cathedral of Aosta on Friday evening. During his homily, the Holy Father told the 400 priests, religious, and lay faithful gathered in the Church that Christ suffered for the salvation of the world, because there is an ocean of evil, hatred and injustice, and many victims of this evil find a path on the river of goodness, truth, and a love greater than injustice.

The pope remarked on his encyclical Caritas in veritate, saying he wanted to show that God comes first in the personal lives of mankind and in history. He said that the omnipotence of God does not work against our freedom, love and truth, because God is freedom, love, and truth.
