God has sown goodness.
No child is born evil.
We are all called to holiness.
The values that God has sown in the human heart
And that present-day people esteem so highly
Are not rare gems;
They are things that appear continually …
The original, pristine human vocation is goodness. We have all been born for goodness.
No one is born with inclinations to kidnap,
No one is born with inclinations to be a criminal,
No one is born to be a torturer,
No one is born to be a murderer.
We have all been born to be good,
To love one another,
To understand one another.
(Bp. Oscar Romero, The Violence of Love, p. 65)
