All will be well, gloriously well

My favourite quotation from Dostoyevsky, who glimpsed something of the future God has for us in Christ:

“I believe like a child that suffering will be healed and made up for, that all the humiliating absurdity of human contradictions will vanish like a pitiful mirage, like the despicable fabrication of the impotent and infinitely small Euclidean mind of man, that in the world’s finale, at the moment of eternal harmony, something so precious will come to pass that it will suffice for all hearts, for the comforting of all resentments, for the atonement of all the crimes of humanity, for all the blood that they have shed; that it will make it not only possible to forgive but to justify all that has happened.”  The Brothers Karamazov
