God shaped holes in the unlikeliest hearts

When Svetlana Stalin, daughter of Joseph Stalin, history’s greatest mass murderer and leader of the world’s first atheistic state, defected to the West, she said: ‘I found it impossible to exist without God in one’s heart. I came to that conclusion myself, without anybody’s help or preaching. That was a great change because since that moment the main dogmas of Communism lost their significance for me.’
Similarly, near the end of his life, Jean-Paul Sartre, the famous atheistic philosopher also had a change of heart. He said: “I do not feel that I am the product of chance, a speck of dust in the universe, but someone who was expected, prepared, prefigured. In short, a being whom only a Creator could put here…’
As the great Pascal said: ‘There’s a God shaped hole in every human heart.’
