Kids ask pope Francis why god lets children suffer
Posted by doctore0 on January 20, 2015
(CNN)A few years ago, Glyzelle Palomar was begging for food on the streets of northern Manila. This week, the 12-year-old girl was on a stage in front of tens of thousands of people, asking Pope Francis why God lets children suffer.
“There are many children neglected by their own parents,” Glyzelle said Sunday at a ceremony at a 400-year-old Catholic university in Manila. “There are also many who became victims and many terrible things happened to them like drugs or prostitution.”
“Why is God allowing such things to happen, even if it is not the fault of the children?” she asked the Pope, breaking down into tears as she spoke.
Living off ‘what I can find in the garbage’
Another former street child, Jun Chura, told Pope Francis about his struggle to survive without a home.
“I was feeding myself with what I can find in the garbage,” said Jun, 14. “I did not know where to go, and I was sleeping on the sidewalk.”
“When I was in the street, I witness also things I don’t like, terrible things that happened to my companions in the street,” Jun said. “I saw that they were taught how to steal, to kill also, and they have no respect anymore for the adults.”
Pope Francis responded to Glyzelle’s question and Jun’s testimony by giving the two children a big hug.
Because there is no god!!!
