‘Never again, Lord’

The pope asks a series of questions of his fellow humans, who caused such tragedy.

“Who corrupted you, who disfigured you, who led you to believe you are the master of good and evil? Not only did you torture your brothers and sisters but you sacrificed them to yourself, because you made yourself a God.”

“Once again in this place we hear this voice of God. Adam, where are you?”

“A great evil has befallen us, as such that has never occurred,” he says.

“Grant us the grace to be ashamed of what men have done, to be ashamed of this massive idolatry.”

“Never again, Lord, never again,” he concludes.
