“I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.”
Albert Einstein (1879-1955) Developed the two pillars of modern physics; the general theory of relativity and quantum mechanics.
Special Report from Sister Ciara
In July of 1943, the great “leaders” of the Allied Powers decided that the Germany city of Hamburg needed to be eradicated from the face of the earth—and so began the fittingly named Operation Gomorrah that saw British and American bombers create one of the largest firestorms our world has ever seen, and that besides destroying this historic city, killed nearly 43,000 innocent civilians and left scared for life another 37,000 more.
Nearly 20 years later, in 1962, I was preparing to begin university in Hamburg, where I had lived for most of life as I was the child of Celtic Christian missionaries, when on the night of 16 February this city was destroyed again—this time by water in what is now known as The Great Flood.
Though I had not witnessed the destruction of Hamburg in 1943, my father, who had, related to me that the “visions” of the hopelessness among the people I saw in 1962 was like those of the survivors two decades previous—but as our family were all adherents of the Seven Distinctives of our Celtic Christian faith, the first precept that flooded into mind was: Hope – Looks first for the good rather than the evil in all things.
Now I’m relating this story to you today because of the truest words I’ve heard in years, that do not come from anyone I personally know, but are nevertheless the most important ones you’ll hear today—“World War III has already begun”.
