Pope Francis in Auschwitz

I saw a news item about the Pope "praying silently" in Auschwitz. I hope he was saying, "Where were you god? Perhaps you were too busy not existing to do something about all this?" Or maybe he was trying to figure out how the Holocaust fitted into some great eternal plan for the greater good. Dare we hope that he was thinking, "If only my toxic religion had faded away in the 1st century, none of this would have happened"?

"Cardinal Secretary of State, Eugenio Pacelli (later to become Pope Pius XII) signs the Concordat between Nazi Germany and the Vatican at a formal ceremony in Rome on 20 July 1933. Nazi Vice-Chancellor Franz von Papen sits at the left, Pacelli in the middle, and the Rudolf Buttmann sits at the right.
The Concordat effectively legitimized Hitler and the Nazi government to the eyes of Catholicism, Christianity, and the world. "
