Essential Vocabulary of Faith: Redemption

Redemption:

That the mystery of evil is real and that it is always destructive of life and of fruitfulness, and that the human condition is that we all suffer from the effects of evil, sometimes as willing accomplices, sometimes as unwitting pawns.  But that evil never has the last word, but that God is constantly at work to redeem, to heal, to restore, and to forgive.
