“I have been through very difficult times in recent years of my life and I am sure that the affliction leads us to the salvation,” told Carrey.
“Your being here is an indication that you’ve made that decision already. You’ve made the decision to walk through the gate of forgiveness to grace. Your being here is an indication that you’ve made that decision already. Just as Christ did on the cross. He suffered terribly and He was broken by it, to the point of doubt and a feeling of absolute abandonment, which all of you have felt.”
“Then there was a decision to be made, and that decision was to look upon the people who were causing that suffering or the situation that was causing that suffering with compassion and with forgiveness, and that’s what opens the gates of heaven”.
I wish that for all of you, and I wish that for myself, Carrey declared.
