A powerful reflection on what recent Popes have been saying

Mark Mallet reflects on what recent Popes have been saying about the End Times.  Very interesting, thought-provoking post full of quotes from recent popes.

He writes:

The popes are shouting to the four corners of the earth that foundations are trembling and ancient edifices are about to collapse; that we are on the threshold of the end of our age—and the beginning of a new age, a new era. Our personal response must be nothing short of what our Lord Himself asks: to pick up our cross, renounce our possessions, and follow Him. Earth is not our home; the kingdom we seek is not to be our own but His. Bringing as many souls with us into it as we can is our mission, by His grace, according to His plan, unfolding now before our very eyes in these, the end times.

“Be prepared to put your life on the line in order to enlighten the world with the truth of Christ; to respond with love to hatred and disregard for life; to proclaim the hope of the risen Christ in every corner of the earth. “—POPE BENEDICT XVI, Message to the Young People of the World, World Youth Day, 2008
