St Seraphim of Sarov on what we shall feel

“When this age comes to an end, at first the Antichrist will remove the crosses from the churches and destroy the monasteries… Then life will be short. The angels will scarcely be able to collect the souls… In the days of that great sorrow of which it is said that no flesh could be saved unless, for the sake of the elect, those days will be cut short – in those days the remnant of the faithful are to experience in themselves something like that which was experienced by the Lord Himself when He, hanging on the Cross, being perfect God and perfect Man, felt Himself so forsaken by His Divinity that He cried out to Him: My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?” (St Seraphim of Sarov).
