An important message about the times we live in!

“Now venerable brethren, you know the times in which we live. They are scarcely less deplorable for the Christian religion than the days which in times past were mostly full of misery of the Church. 

We see Faith, the root of all Christian virtues, lessening in many souls; we see charity growing cold; the young generation growing daily in depravity of morals and views; the Church of Jesus Christ attacked on every side by open force or by craft, a relentless war waged against the Sovereign Pontiff and the very foundations of religion undermined with a boldness which waxes daily in intensity.”

Sounds like our times, right? This was written by Pope Leo XIII in 1889
