12-year old asked Pope Francis: Why does God allow this to happen?
12-year-old Glyzelle Palomar, dressed in a Filipiniana attire and was carrying a prepared speech to relate her life as a street kid to Pope Francis at the University of Santo Tomas in Manila (UST). She started by introducing herself as one who lives in the streets and who is exposed to all sorts of problems such as drugs and prostitution.
She then asked in Filipino “Why does God allow abuse and prostitution? Why does God allow this to happen?” and then she broke down and cried and stopped speaking. In a span of several seconds, this little girl’s speech managed to make everyone cry.
