    Pope says faith is not an ideology, and God is greater than nothingness

    Speaking during his general audience, Pope Francis said the ministry of St. Paul started from a “conclusive fact, that is not the outcome of a wise man’s reflection”: Jesus died, was buried, and rose again. The pope said Paul was “not an altar boy” and was originally a persecutor of the Church, but his testimony gives witness to the fact that God is “greater than nothingness, and a lighted candle is enough to defeat the darkest of nights.”
