Default Pope resigns, meteorite strikes Russia; sign of end times?

Such major and unforeseen events occurring around the world! Could this be a sign of the end times, the beginning of tribulation, religious persecutions throughout the world? Especially, the lightning strike to the Vatican -- Holy Mother Church. God is warning us. It's not a coincidence. It has been written about and is now coming to fruition. We must wake up and turn back to Our Lord and His Mother. What are your views? The church's views?

Hi,

The pope is retiring because of ill health and old age. How many 85 year-olds do you know who are working full time? The world is certainly morally corrupt, but let's not lose our heads. Prayer and penance each day IS necessary and has been for a long, long time. Our Lady has asked for it several times--not to mention all that the Gospels have to say about it.
They also tell us that only the Father knows when the world will end. We do better to concern ourselves with preparing for our own death. That will be the end of the world for us--for sure!

Fr. Vincent Serpa, O.P.
