Rev. Fr. Matthieu Dauchez, Executive Director of the TNK Foundation gave a talk in France on “But why is God allowing such things ?”.
A great success!
– in Paris , 1400 people came to listen to the lessons of the street children of Manila, last September 29th at église St Jean Baptiste de Grenelle – 75015 Paris
– in Lyon, 850 people have attended it last October 12th at église Sainte Croix – 27 rue de Condé – 69002 Lyon.
But why is God allowing such things ? This issue affects everyone without exception. Whether it be the evil, suffering, or death, each and every man is faced with this unanswered question. And when it comes to children, this thought takes a terrible dimension and highlights the “scandal of the evil” in a much more violent way. It ‘s unbearable. Many people have addressed this issue, excusing a God of goodness or rather irrevocably condemning a God that is cruel, but they have all faced an unfathomable mystery.
What if children, most innocent of victims, gave us some of the keys to this mystery ?
