Why God's Silence? Pope Asks at Auschwitz
"In a Place Like This, Words Fail"

KRAKOW, Poland, MAY 28, 2006 (Zenit.org).- Benedict XVI visited the site of the Auschwitz concentration camp today, a stop he personally wished to include in his pilgrimage in Poland.

"To speak in this place of horror, in this place where unprecedented mass crimes were committed against God and man, is almost impossible -- and it is particularly difficult and troubling for a Christian, for a Pope from Germany," the Holy Father said today as he began his address.

"In a place like this, words fail," he said. "In the end, there can only be a dread silence -- a silence which is itself a heartfelt cry to God: Why, Lord, did you remain silent? How could you tolerate all this?"

Maybe a better question, Why was mankind silent for so long?
Why were cultures of goodwill, brotherhood & faith
not quicker to act?

"People travel to wonder at the height of the mountains, at the huge waves of the seas, at the long course of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars, and yet they pass by themselves without wondering."

-- Saint Augustine

"Every man is his own ancestor, and every man is his own heir. He devises his own future, and he inherits his own past."
