I Can't Get Enough of Pope Francis!

And I'm not the only one!

If this latest statement from the Pope doesn't swell your heart and water your eyes, well, then, you may want to go see your doctor.  In theological terms, this is as compelling a statement of the doctrine of prevenient grace as you are likely to find.  It is also the indispensable motive for evangelization. 

"I have a dogmatic certainty: God is in every person’s life. God is in everyone’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. Although the life of a person is a land full of thorns and weeds, there is always a space in which the good seed can grow. You have to trust God."

Best of all is this interpretative analysis by Cardinal George:
