Jim Carrey is known for making people laugh during his movies, but recently offered hope to formally incarcerated people.
The Gospel Herald mentions he said, “I believe that this room is filled with God, and walk through the gate of forgiveness to grace.”
He delivered this moving speech at Homeboy Industries in L.A. organization that help former inmates.
Carrey spoke to the inmates about his life battles with depression and has made it over many challenges.
He told them, “Just as Christ did on the cross. He suffered terribly and He was broken by it, to the point of doubt and a feeling of absolutely abandonment, which all of you have felt. Then there was a decision to be made. And the decision was to look upon the people who were causing that suffering with compassion and with forgiveness, and that’s what opens the gates of heaven for all of us. I wish that for all of you. I wish that for myself.”
Carrey was raised Catholic and was filled with so much joy to give these words to the.
