...and it comes to pass...

"I am worried by the Blessed Virgin's messages to Lucy of
Fatima. This persistence of Mary about the dangers which 
menace the Church is a divine warning against the suicide
 of altering the Faith, in Her liturgy, Her theology and Her 
soul. … I hear all around me innovators who wish to 
dismantle the Sacred Chapel, destroy the universal flame 
of the Church, reject Her ornaments and make Her feel 
remorse for Her historical past.

"A day will come when the civilized world will deny its God,
 when the Church will doubt as Peter doubted. She will be 
tempted to believe that man has become God. In our 
churches, Christians will search in vain for the red lamp 
where God awaits them. Like Mary Magdalene, weeping 
before the empty tomb, they will ask, 'Where have they 
taken Him?'"
Eugenio Pacelli, future Pius XII.
Roche, "Pie XII Devant L'Historie", p. 52-53
