"When therefore you shall see the abomination of desolation, which was spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place: he that readeth let him understand. Then they that are in Judea, let them flee to the mountains: And he that is on the house-top, let him not come down to take anything out of his house. And he that is in the field, let him not go back to take his coat. And woe to them that are with child, and that give suck in those days. But pray that your flight be not in the winter, or on the sabbath. For there shall be then great tribulation, such as hath not been from the beginning of the world until now, neither shall be. And unless those days had been shortened, no flesh should be saved; but for the sake of the elect those days shall be shortened.And yet, amidst that desolation, we can glance around at these glories of Christendom, breathe in the age old smell of incense that still permeates some of these places, and remember another verse:
Then if any man shall say to you: Lo here is Christ, or there; do not believe him. For there shall arise false Christs and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders, insomuch as to deceive (if possible), even the elect." (St. Matthew XXIV: xv-xxiv)
"But, as it is written: That eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither hath it entered into the heart of man, what things God hath prepared for them that love him." (I Corinthians II: ix)Step inside the European church with that knowledge that all things, in time, will pass away, and let the sadness you may feel turn into great joy.
