VATICAN - Pope: God "walks with the righteous and sinners”. He walks, with patience, "to arrive at man’s final encounter with Him" [AN]

God created the universe by giving man autonomy and freedom, so he could go forward in history. “He wanted us to be like His Son and His Son to be like us.” "Today we can look at the Blessed Virgin, the small, holy child without sin, pure and predestined to become the Mother of God and also look at the story that lies behind her, so long, over centuries and ask: 'How do I journey in my story? Do I allow God walk with me or do I want to walk alone?”.
