Gathering, I will gather together all things from off the face of the land, saith the Lord: I will gather man, and beast, I will gather the birds of the air, and the fishes of the sea: and the ungodly shall meet with ruin: and I will destroy men from off the face of the land, saith the Lord. Prophecy Of Sophonias i:1-3
Hear the word of the Lord, ye children of Israel, for the Lord shall enter into judgment with the inhabitants of the land: for there is no truth, and there is no mercy, and there is no knowledge of God in the land. Cursing, and lying, and killing, and theft, and adultery have overflowed, and blood hath touched blood. Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth in it shall languish with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of the air: yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be gathered together. But yet let not any man judge: and let not a man be rebuked: for thy people are as they that contradict the priest. And thou shalt fall today, and the prophet also shall fall with thee: in the night I have made thy mother to be silent. Prophecy Of Osee iv.1-5.
Woe to the inhabitants of the earth. There will be bloody wars, and famines; plagues and contagious diseases; there will be frightful showers of animals; thunders which will demolish cities; earthquakes which will engulf countries; voices will be heard in the air; men will beat their heads against the walls; they will call on death, yet death will constitute their torment; blood will flow on all sides. Who could overcome, if God doesn't shorten the time of trial? At the blood, tears and prayers of the righteous, God will relent; Enoch and Elias will be put to death; pagan Rome will disappear; the fire of Heaven will fall and consume three cities; the whole universe will be struck with terror, and many will allow themselves to be seduced because they didn't adore the true Christ living in their midst. It is time; the sun is darkening; Faith alone will survive. Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)
"Nature begs vengeance on account of men, and she shudders with dread, awaiting what must happen to the crime-stained earth. Tremble, earth, and you who profess to serve Jesus Christ, while interiorly you adore yourselves, tremble; for God will hand you over to His enemy, because the holy places are in a state of corruption; many convents are no longer houses of God, but pastures for Asmodeus and his own." Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)
Meet the buzz Mob: Tourists flee in terror as swarm of bees descends on New York's Little Italy

It's been enshrined in New York legend as the home of the Mob.
But today tourists in Little Italy encountered a different kind of Mafia when a swarm of bees descended on legendary Mulberry Street.
They screamed in terror as hundreds of buzzing honeybees suddenly appeared around a mailbox at midday.
The panic was so great NYPD officers were forced to cordon off an entire stretch of sidewalk from the corner with Grand Street while they waited for reinforcements - New York's own beekeeping association.
It remained closed for hours as frustrated restaurateurs looked on and visitors gathered round the mailbox to take photos of the blanket of insects on their camera phones.
Some compared it to a movie set, as police officers stood guard to make sure no-one got hurt by the invasion.
The box, outside the Italian-American Museum, was almost entirely covered by bees for several hours.
But soon help arrived in the form of Elie Miodownik, from the New York City Beekeepers' Association, who turned up in full protective costume to rescue the bees and take them to a new hive. more
