St. Columba on the Latter Days

St. Columba of Iona ca. 521-597

Hearken, hearken to what will happen in the latter days of the world ! There will be great wars ; unjust laws will be enacted; the Church will be despoiled of her property ; people will read and write a great deal ; but charity and humility will be laughed to scorn, and the common people will believe in false ideas. (The Book of the End: An Interpretation of the Apocalypse of St. John the Theologian by Vladimir Moss pg. 2)
