What God directs is never destroyed, even when nations suffer ruin. Only where Christ’s love rules are human beings valued for who they are, and everything else – social institutions and customs – takes second place and even becomes unimportant. The hidden church of Jesus Christ, out of which something of God’s future can come, remains and will never die. It is only the mantles of religion and philosophy and Christianity that are in tatters. A new mantle is needed – made of God’s pure love and the capacity to receive it.

If you are observant, you can always find traces of God at work.
