Child Recognizes God in Creation

Sofia Cavalletti relates the experience of a 3-year-old girl who grew up in an atheistic home where no one ever spoke of God:

One day she questioned her father about the origin of the world: "Where does the world come from?" Her father replied—in a manner consistent with his ideas—with a discourse that was materialistic in nature. Then he added: "However, there are those who say that all this comes from a very powerful being, and they call him God."
At this point the little girl began to run like a whirlwind around the room in a burst of joy and exclaimed: "I knew what you told me wasn't true; it is Him, it is Him!"
