"It seems as if the roots of evil lie deeper, as if evil contains a sort of mystery greater than man, one that transcends his history and his means of action... it is difficult to measure the evil which is our lot on this earth. It is a mystery greater than man, deeper than his heart. Gethsamane and Calvary speak of it, and at the same time bear witness that in the history of man, in his heart, another mystery is at work, that of the Redemption, which will work to the end to uproot evil. "It is time to put aside all fear and pursue daring apostolic goals. 'Duc in altum (Lk. 5:4).'" Christ's invitation spurs us to put out into the deep and to nourish ambitious dreams of personal holiness and apostolic fruitfulness."
Pope John Paul II
