Pope Has Lost Me!

I am trying really hard to understand Pope Francis. Yet there are moments when, try as hard as I can, I just do not get him, at all. The latest confusion is because of what he said in an interview published in La Repubblica. So please, someone help me to understand what the heck Pope Francis is saying?

Pope Francis is quoted as saying: “God is the light that illuminates the darkness, even if it does not dissolve it, and a spark of divine light is within each of us. In the letter I wrote to you, you will remember I said that our species will end but the light of God will not end and at that point it will invade all souls and it will all be in everyone.
