St. Francis de Sales: "[T]he Sacrifice shall Cease... the Son of Man shall hardly find Faith"

"[E]ven now there are many Antichrists."
- John 2:18

"Public Masses suspended in Italy as coronavirus continues to spread"
(Catholic Courier headline, March 9, 2020)

Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales:

"We place our trust in the Holy Word, which promises perpetuity to the Church.."

"... It is written that the revolt and speration must come (2 These. ii 3), and the sacrifice shall cease (Dan. xii. 11), and that the Son of Man shall hardly find faith on the earth... afflictions which antichrist will cause in the Church... but in spite of this the Church during the three years shall not fail."
(The Catholic Controversy, By St Francis de Sales, Page 62)

"[E]ven now there are many Antichrists."
- John 2:18

Pray for the grace of deep faith, hope and charity and despite the present darkness never forget:

"[T]he Church... shall not fail."

Pray an Our Father now and offer your Mass today, tommorow or Sunday before they suspend "the sacrifice" for the restoration of the Church as well as for the Triumph of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
