Out of the good treasures of the heart

Created in the image of God, each person possesses a fundamental goodness and dignity. However, our human nature bears the wound of original sin, making us inclined to evil and subject to error. “Man is divided in himself. As a result, the whole life of men, both individual and social, shows itself to be a struggle, and a dramatic one, between good and evil, between light and darkness” (CCC 1707) .
