After my death our beloved Church abroad will break three ways ... first the Greeks will leave us as they were never a part of us ... then those who live for this world and its glory will go to Moscow ... what will remain will be those souls faithful to Christ and His Church. ~St. Philaret of NY


Christ our first Teacher on the end times

Two verses from Great Compline Monday Holy Week
(Let those who say we should not concern ourselves with end times teaching be shutted up.)  

O Jesus, beyond measure is Thy love for mankind!  For Thou hast made known to us the appointed time when the end of the world shall come to pass, though Thou hast hidden the hour from us, yet Thou hast plainly revealed the signs which shall precede its coming.
Canticle Two,Triodion page 520

When the Teacher spoke of flight on the Sabbath and in the winter, He foretold darkly, as in a riddle, the storm of the present age, which is the seventh day of the week, when the end shall come as the winter.
Canticle Eight,Triodion page 521
