Quote from the Catechism of the Catholic Church Paragraph 7. THE FALL

385 - God is infinitely good and all his works are good. Yet no one can escape the experience of suffering or the evils in nature which seem to be linked to the limitations proper to creatures: and above all to the question of moral evil. Where does evil come from? "I sought whence evil comes and there was no solution", said St. Augustine, and his own painful quest would only be resolved by his conversion to the living God. For "the mystery of lawlessness" is clarified only in the light of the "mystery of our religion".

The revelation of divine love in Christ manifested at the same time the extent of evil and the superabundance of grace.

We must therefore approach the question of the origin of evil by fixing the eyes of our faith on him who alone is its conqueror.

Genesis Chapter 1 Creation
I have a beginning, Genesis, which means "birth" or "origin".  God the father is the one who gave us life in the womb of our mother.  Everyone is created in the likeness and image of God.

Genesis 1: 26-27 - "Then God said: "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. Let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and the cattle, and over all the wild animals and all the creatures that crawl on the ground." God created man in his image; in the divine image he created him; male and female he created them."

YOU are a unique, one of a kind, an original masterpiece, son or daughter of the most high God, created in his likeness and image. There will never be another like you! No one can do the work that God has called you to do. God Loves you!

Genesis Chapter 3 The Fall

Genesis 3: 9-10 - The LORD God then called to the man and asked him, "Where are you?" He answered, "I heard you in the garden; but I was afraid, because I was naked, so I hid myself."

Man desired the Knowledge of the difference between good and evil. This knowledge introduced mankind to the Law. We became judges acting like God judging one another. Great disaster - They realized they were naked and fear entered the world. Death entered the world and everyone dies.
