      Evil is evil, no doubt; it is not divine and it is not an illusion. It is a
      real blot on the fair face of creation. Its existence can­not be justified
      in the sense that it is the right thing and has to be welcomed and
      maintained, since it forms part of the universal symphony. Not even in the
      sense that it is a test and a trial set by the Divine for the righteous to
      prove their merit. It has not been put there with a set purpose, but that
      once given, it has been the occasion of a miracle, it offered the
      opportunity for the manifestation of something unique, great and grandiose,
      marvellous and beautiful. The presence of evil moved the Divine – Giustizia
      masse il mio alto Fattorel¹ – and Grace was born. He descended, the Aloof
      and the Transcend­ent, in all his love and compassion down into this vale of
      tears: he descended straight into our midst without halting anywhere in the
      infinite gradation that marks the distance between the highest and the
      lowest, he descended from the very highest into the very lowest, demanding
      nothing, asking for no condition whatsoever from the soul in Ignorance, from
      the earth under the grip of evil. Thus it was that Life lodged itself in the
      home of death, Light found its way into the far cavern of obscurity and
      inconscience, and Delight bloomed in the core of misery. Hope was lit, a
      flame rising from the nether gloom towards the Dawn.
