The same Holy Pontiff concludes: “True, we are passing through disastrous times, when we may well make our own the lamentation of the Prophet: ‘There is no truth and no mercy and no knowledge of God on the Earth. Blasphemy and lying homicide and theft and adultery have inundated it.’ (Os. 4:1-2).
Yet, in the midst of this deluge of evil, the Virgin Most Clement rises before our eyes like a rainbow. As the arbiter of peace between God and man: ‘I will set my bow in the clouds and it shall be the sign of a covenant between Me and the Earth’ (Gen.9:13).”
