Why did the Pope say that sometimes he feels that God is sleeping?


Does that mean that his faith is lacking in some aspects? Is that why he is really quitting? Prayers unanswered.

    Great words. But the Pope lacks sufficient "faith" to walk on water as did Peter (even if it was for only a moment). Miracles continue even today, but only for those who turn to God in spirit -- not just body and mind.

    He wasn't saying that God was ACTUALLY asleep, he was saying that sometimes, it the midst of terrible trials, it can SEEM to us as if the Lord is asleep and not paying attention. It was a way to say that everyone has doubts sometimes.

    Stop being a victim, peeples. That is the problem -- too much "self."

    Questioning is good, but never listening to the answers is not very smart.

    God wants to save His children and He is not Homo sapiens.

    God's people differ before and after Jesus' rising in that before they worked for Him and after they worked with Him, when doing His will. We can rest in God and He rests in us when we agree to take His pains. Work, then, is shared never abandoned.
