Justin Trudeau Tells of His Faith in God

From an article about his upcoming memoir:

Trudeau was raised a Catholic as a child, saying prayers and reading the Bible with his father and two brothers. By the time he was in his 20s, he had become a “lapsed Catholic.”

Then came the death of his younger brother, Michel, in a British Columbia avalanche in 1998. To help deal with his grief, he attended a course on Christianity.

“It came at exactly the right time. Trusting in God’s plan. For someone as rational and scientific and logical and rigorous as I am, to accept the unknowable and to re-anchor myself in faith was really, really important to me.”

“Since that moment, I still consider myself and have re-found myself of a deep faith and belief in God.”

Trudeau stresses he believes in the “separation of church and state” in his political thinking.

Some good priest needs to adopt him. A faithful priest.
