Read this and tell me it doesn't address at least 9-10 Current issues in the world today......... List them if you want!
The following is St. Columbcille’s prophecies that seem to point to our present day and age:
“Hearken, thou, until I relate things that shall come to pass in the latter ages of the world. Great carnage shall be made, justice shall be
outraged, multitudinous evils, great suffering shall prevail, and many unjust laws will be administered. The time shall come when they will not
perform charitable acts, and truth shall not remain in them, and truth shall not remain in them. They will plunder the property of the church, they
will be continually sneering at each other, they will employ them at reading and writing. They will scoff at acts of humility; there will come times
of dark affliction, of scarcity, monarchs will be addicted to falsehood. Neither justice nor covenant will be observed by any one people of the race
of Adam; they will become hard-hearted and penurious, and will be devoid of piety. The clergy will become fosterers, in consequence of the tidings of
wretchedness; churches will be held in bondage by the all-powerful men of the day.
“Judges will administer injustice, under the sanction of powerful, outrageous kings; the common people will adopt false principles. Oh, how
lamentable shall be their position! Doctors of science will have cause to murmur, they will become ungenerous in spirit; the aged will mourn in deep
sorrow, on account of the woeful times that shall prevail. Cemeteries shall become all red, in consequence of the wrath that will follow sinners; wars
and contentions shall range in the bosoms of every family. Excellent men shall be steeped in poverty, the people will become inhospitable to their
guests, the voice of the parasite shall be more agreeable to them than the melody of the harp touched by the sage’s finger. In consequence of the
general prevalence of sinful practices, humility shall produce no fruit. The professors of science shall not be rewarded, amiability shall not
characterize the people; prosperity and hospitality shall not exist, but destitution will assume their place. The changes of the seasons shall produce
only half their verdure, the regular festivals of the Church will not be observed; all classes of men shall be filled with hatred and enmity toward
each other. The people will not associate affectionately with each other during the great festivals of the seasons; they will live devoid of justice
and rectitude, up from the youth of tender age to the aged. The clergy shall be led into error by the misinterpretation of their reading; the relics
of the saints will be considered powerless, every race of mankind will become wicked!
“Young women will become unblushing, the aged people will be of irascible temper; the kine will seldom be productive, as of old; lords will become
murderers. Young people will decline in vigor, they will despise those who have hoary (gray) hair; there will be no standard by which morals may be
regulated, and marriages will be solemnized without witnesses. Troublous shall be the latter ages of the world, the dispositions of the generality of
men I will point out, from the time they shall abandon hospitable habits — with the view of winning honor for themselves, they will hold each other
as objects for ridicule. The possessors of abundance shall fall through the multiplicity of their falsehoods; covetousness shall take possession of
every glutton, and when satisfied their arrogance shall know no bounds. Between mother and daughter anger and bitter sarcasms shall continuously
exist; neighbors will become treacherous, cold, and false-hearted towards each another. The gentry will become grudgeful, with respect to their
trifling donations; and blood relations shall become cool towards each other; Church livings shall become lay property. Such is the description of the
people who shall live in the ages to come; more unjust and iniquitous shall be very succeeding race of men. The trees shall not bear the usual
quantity of fruit, fisheries shall become unproductive and the earth shall not yield its usual abundance. Inclement weather and famine shall come and
fishes shall forsake the rivers. The people will be oppressed for lack of food, shall pine to death. Dreadful storms and hurricanes shall afflict
them. Numberless diseases shall then prevail. Fortifications shall be built narrow during these times of dreadful danger.
Then a great event shall happen. I fail not to notice it: rectitude shall be its specious motive, and if ye be not truly holy, a more sorrowful event
could not possibly happen.
“Seven years before the last day, the sea shall submerge Eire (Ireland) by one inundation.”
