When the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?(Luke 18:8)

…in vast areas of the world the faith is in danger of dying out like a flame which no longer has fuel… The real problem at this moment of our history is that God is disappearing from the human horizon, and, with the dimming of the light which comes from God, humanity is losing its bearings, with increasingly evident destructive effects.

Leading men and women to God, to the God who speaks in the Bible and bringing God to men and women: this is the supreme and fundamental priority of the Church and of the Successor of Peter at the present time.

—Letter of His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI to All the Bishops of the World, March 10, 2009
