St. Anthony the Great said, "A time will come when men will go mad, and they will see those who are not mad and say to them, 'You are mad. You are not like us.'"
This, however, I think has played out in many ages, but it is quite evident today. As the Psalmist says, "If the foundations be destroyed, what shall the righteous do?" The foundations, those things which most human societies have taken for granted for centuries, are being hacked apart. But this is not a cause for pessimism and despair. It is still very much God's world. And who shall oppose him? Who or what shall separate us, or anyone else, from the love of Christ? Nothing happens without God's allowance. And God and his saints have not at all abandoned the world, but are always active, even more now than every before. We do not see it happen before our eyes, but God's grace is evident everywhere, blatant for those who seek it.
