CWN Editor's Note: Meeting on March 24 with relatives of Polish miners who were killed in an accident last April, Pope Francis told them that questioning God can be a form of prayer.
The Pontiff remarked that the silence of God “sometimes gives us anger,” and in that case, “anger too is prayer.”
“In the darkness, the Lord is near,” the Pope assured the family members. “We do not know how, but He is near to us.”
