We can learn from this unfortunate incident.
“And the enemies set fire to the house of God, and broke down the wall of Jerusalem, burnt all the towers, and whatsoever was precious they destroyed.” ~2 Chronicles 36:19
“For an example of the just judgment of God, that you may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which also you suffer. Seeing it is a just thing with God to repay tribulation to them that trouble you: And to you who are troubled, rest with us when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven, with the angels of his power: In a flame of fire, giving vengeance to them who know not God, and who obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.” ~2 Thessalonians 1:5-8
“But I will visit upon you according to the fruit of your doings, saith the Lord: and I will kindle a fire in the forest thereof: and it shall devour all things round about it.” ~Jeremiah 21:14
The Modernists have spiritually set fire to everything that the Church holds dear, all of her beautiful churches, art and architecture and her venerable traditions. All of this out of a hatred for the Catholic Faith that has been known, loved and practiced for 2,000 years.
It sure is horrifying to see the destruction of a beautiful, ancient church of Christendom – in reality. Pray that the Faith be restored in the Eldest Daughter of the Church and throughout the world so that the churches can physically be restored and re-built for the honor and glory of God and the salvation of souls.
