Written in 1881 by an aged French priest, this remarkable book spurred St. Thérèse into the convent and then, for more than a century, it plunged back into obscurity. In it, Fr. Arminjon gets right to the point: "The end of the world, Christ says, will come when the human race, sunk in the depths of indifference, is far from thinking about punishment and justice. It will be as in the days of Noah, when men lived without a care, built luxurious homes, and mocked Noah as he built his ark." But he doesn't just sketch the darkness ahead; he also shows how Jesus will fill that darkness with light; and he details the rich bounty Christ has in store for all who stay faithful. That's what caught Thérèse up in such fervent love of God, nourished her impatience for Heaven, and confirmed her decision to choose a life wholly consecrated to Divine Love. Let this book show you how to read the signs of the times and prepare you to bear yourself as a Christian...no matter what the future holds!
