Q. Where is the justice of God, in permittinng such an uneven distribution of goods in this world?
A. A satisfactory explanation would not be possible if this life on Earth was all there was or ever would be. But it is not. The soul is eternal. God permits these things only because He knows that there is a future life where He will rectify and compensate all inequalities. In the meantime He draws good out of these miseries, for they teach men no to set their hopes entirely upon this world as if there were no other, and help to expiate the sins of mankind. If we cannot be entirely hppy here , let us at least make sure of being happy in the next life. Radio Replies Vol. 1 #14
