In a recent interview Pope Francis addressed the topic of faith and certainty. If someone has the answers to all the questions, Francis said, “that is the proof that God is not with him.” The great leaders of the faith have always left room for uncertainty. “You must leave room for the Lord, not for our certainties.” There is one principle about which the pope is certain: “God is in every person’s life. . . . Even if the life of a person has been a disaster, even if it is destroyed by vices, drugs or anything else—God is in this person’s life. You can, you must try to seek God in every human life” (America, September 30).
