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)
