THE PROVIDENTIAL MAN

Every five years, during the Presidential elections, French voters collectively persuade themselves that life is going to change for the better. That one man or one woman will arise from the masses and solve all their problems. And if, in the end, their disappointment is as deep as their expectations were high. Where does this human hope in an extraordinary “heaven sent” man (or woman) come from? Deep down, do we still hope for signs of divine providence? Proof of God intervening in human affairs to restore order to the chaos in the world?
