Good from Evil

In 1995, a man was praying before the Blessed Sacrament in Medjugorje, Bosnia-Hercegovina. All of a sudden, his own life began to play out before his eyes like a movie, in remarkable detail and with a tremendous aspect of reality.

He saw events from his childhood that he had forgotten. He saw events from a completely different perspective and was able to understand the meanings of them that, up to then, had been hidden from him.

He rejoiced in the good things he had done and, surprisingly, saw how God even drew benefit from evil things he had done. He said, “God used the evil there had been in my life to bring me to Him, and I was amazed to see in what a marvelous way He had succeeded in leading me through evil as well as through good.”
