Vatican Correspondent John Allen Notes Pope Using "Apocalyptic" Language

Topics: Faith

One of the leading English-language Vatican correspondents, John Allen of National Catholic Reporter, has noted that Pope Benedict has recently used "apocalyptic" language.

In his October 3 column, Allen covers the homily given by the Pope at the opening mass of the synod of bishops. "Speaking in somewhat apocalyptic tones," wrote Allen, "the pope warned: 'The judgment announced by the Lord Jesus referred above all to the destruction of Jerusalem in the year 70. But the threat of judgment also regards us, the church of Europe, Europe and the West in general.
Has modern man's ability to exercise his healthy critical and analytical faculties been so limited by corrupt education, by media indoctrination, and by a generalized loss of the sense of human identity, that a new world order is being achieved - and achieved to the degree that it is becoming understood as a 'moral' cause, and a great leap forward in the name of humanity?

This is the most cogent comment on the status of Christianity in our times ever published. O'Brien states the condition of our world, our society, better than any author. A great read for anyone.
