AUDIENCE: GOD IS NOT INDIFFERENT TO HUMAN EVENTS
VATICAN CITY, MAY 11, 2005 (VIS) - In today's general audience, held in St. Peter's Square, the Holy Father spoke on the canticle of chapter 15, verses 3 and 4, of the Book of Revelation: "Hymn of adoration and praise." The catechesis was one prepared by John Paul II.

"History is not in the hands of dark forces, of chance, or of merely human choices," Benedict XVI told the 17,000 people present. "The Lord, supreme arbiter of historical events, rises above the discharge of evil energies, the vehement onslaught of Satan, the emergence of plagues and wickedness. He knowingly guides history to the dawn of the new heaven and the new earth, as mentioned in the last part of the book in the image of the new Jerusalem."

The Holy Father indicated how the hymn is sung by "the just of history, the vanquishers of the Satanic beast, those who through the seeming defeat of martyrdom are in reality the builders of the new world, with God the supreme architect." The intention of this canticle, the Pope said, "is to reaffirm that God is not indifferent to human affairs, but penetrates them creating His 'ways,' in other words His projects and His efficacious 'works'."
