It’s Evil Not to Do Good

via Vatican News:

“Many times we hear some saying, ‘I don’t hurt anyone.’ That’s fine,” the Pope said. “But do you do good?”

Pope Francis said many people “do not do evil, but neither do they do any good”. These people pass their lives “in indifference, apathy, and lukewarmness.”

He said this attitude of simply not doing evil is contrary to the Gospel and the nature of young people. And he gave them a simple formula for life:

“It’s good not to do evil. But it’s evil not to do good!”

Pope Francis said evil spreads “where there are no bold Christians to oppose it with goodness.”

“If we do not oppose evil, we feed it with our silence.”
