Good can exist without evil,
whereas evil cannot exist without good.
(St. Thomas Aquinas)
God whispers to us in our pleasures,
speaks in our conscience,
but shouts in our pains:
it is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world.
And this is the boldness we have in him,
that if we ask anything according to his will,
he hears us.
And if we know that he hears us in whatever
we ask, we know that we have
obtained the requests made of him.
1 John 5:14-15
