Barack Obama: “There is always the possibility of redemption. "

Lhen the annual Easter meal at the White House, Barack Obama refers to the too many victims of the latest attacks in Belgium and Pakistan, and recalls his own faith in front of 140 Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox leaders.

“The real meaning of Easter is that one should not be afraid. […] These attacks can breed fear and division. They can make us want to hunt the stranger. Oppose those who don't look like us, or don't pray exactly the way we do. And they can make us turn our backs on those most in need of help and refuge. […] The intention of the terrorists is to weaken our faith, to weaken our best impulses. […] Faith changes us. I know she changed me. It renews in us a feeling of possibility. It allows us to believe that although we are all sinners, despite our hesitation, there is always the possibility of redemption. "
