“The Future of the World is at Stake” – Benedict

Only if there is such a consensus on the essentials can constitutions and law function. This fundamental consensus derived from the Christian heritage is at risk… In reality, this makes reason blind to what is essential. To resist this eclipse of reason and to preserve its capacity for seeing the essential, for seeing God and man, for seeing what is good and what is true, is the common interest that must unite all people of good will. The very future of the world is at stake. – Benedict XVI

Then suddenly the Roman Empire may break up, and Antichrist appear as a persecutor, and the barbarous nations around break in. — John Henry Newman, Sermon IV: The Persecution of Antichrist
