Eckardtesian Thought: I think, therefore I write . . .
The gruesome and devastating destruction of Jerusalem and the beautiful temple in a.d. 70 was the first part of the final judgment upon the whole world. It has begun. It was shortened, that is, cut short, for the sake of the elect, as Jesus says in St. Matthew 24. You are the elect of whom he speaks. The judgment upon Jerusalem is an historical preview of the final Judgment; therefore let us flee to the hills: to the Mount where Jesus preached, to the Mount of Olives, the the Mountain called Golgotha. These are the places of the Gospel and blessed Sacrament. These are our places of refuge against that Day. Sermon for Trinity XXV.
