Stories of Elie Wiesel

As he told us so many stories about God and man, let us now tell a few stories about him.
He was a God-intoxicated man. Only a believer could be so angry with God. Wiesel speaks to us through one of his characters in Gates of the Forest.
He presents a conversation between the prophet Elijah and Gavriel.  Elijah instructs the young Gavriel: “You think you’re cursing Him, but all you do is open yourself to Him.  You think you’re crying out your hatred and rebellion, but all you’re doing is telling Him how much you need His support and forgiveness.”
