GOD’S VENGEANCE

***

Arrive too early?

So think the guilty, but not

So the innocent

***

NOTE: At the end of Canto 21, after criticizing the bad deeds of bad popes and bad cardinals, the contemplative souls give a cry of righteous zeal that shakes Dante, although he cannot make out the words. In Canto 22, Beatrice tells Dante thatGod’s vengeance arrives at exactly the right time, although the guilty think it arrives too early and the innocent think it arrives too late.
