Later in that episode,
How easily some of us blame God for the evil in our lives. God does not cause evil. That is contrary to what we mean by "God"; if God did evil, He would not be God. However, God permits evil to happen to us. Why?
The Catechism tells us that God permits evil for two reasons: "...because he respects the freedom of his creatures and, mysteriously, knows how to derive good from it:"  Vince is correct that a man did that evil to him and his family. What he doesn't realize, yet, is the great good that God can bring out of that evil through his heroism.
It wasn't an act of God. Nonetheless, it is part of God's plan.
