Pope at Auschwitz death camp:
"In a place like this, words fail. In the end, there can only be a dread silence - a silence which is itself a heartfelt cry to God: Why, Lord, did you remain silent? How could you tolerate all this? Where was God in those days? Why was he silent? How could he permit this endless slaughter, this triumph of evil?"' he said in a speech delivered in Italian."
Hey Pope! how about you turn that question on yourself and on your office. "Pius 12, why did YOU remain silent. How could YOU tolerate this. Where was THE CHURCH in those days? Why was IT silent? How could IT permit this endless slaughter, this triumph of evil?""
