Only a lunatic

8 August 2021

In the Church we have research. The greatest researchers were the saints. The saints arrived at and tested all the various points. This was precisely where they started from. Is there really a God? If he exists, let’s test him, investigate him; if he doesn’t exist, let’s reject the idea. We’d have to be very stupid people and utterly wretched if we conducted our great struggle on the basis of a possibility, a probability that God might exist. If we’re not a hundred per cent, or a million per cent sure of the existence of God as experienced in our heart, then only a lunatic would follow the Gospel and Christ.
