Pope Francis Warns He Has Seen ‘Omens of Even Greater Destruction and Desolation’ For Mankind.
The Pope has warned that he has seen signs of an even darker time for humanity, while offering harrowing vision of the future.
At a Mass at the Vatican, the Pope, 85, said that he has a dire vision for the world with ‘omens of even greater destruction and desolation’.
Despite the current challenges in the World including Russia’s conflict in Ukraine, the rising cost of living, poverty, and other crisis – the Pope said he has a vision that things will get worse.
In his homily, the pontiff said ‘it is a bitter time, filled with the rumbling of war, growing injustice, famine, poverty and suffering,’ but at this ‘bleak and disconcerting’ time, there are ‘omens of even greater destruction and desolation’.
He added that at Christmas,God’s ‘divine love and his coming down to us tell us that this too is a propitious time of salvation, in which the Lord, through the Virgin Mother, continues to give us his Son’.
The pontiff recounted the Bible verse from John 3:16: ‘God who so loved the world, sent us his son, born of a woman, so that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life’.
In the celebration of the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe the Pope said that the Virgin Mary ‘invites us to leave behind all the prejudices and fears that populate our hearts and to trust in the true God for whom we live, joyfully and confidently directing us to reaffirm our belonging to the Lord’.
