                   the course of our study. The evolution of positive science and the rhythm at which it is

                   progressing tend to confirm this opinion. We must note also that the preaching of the
                   Gospel has now become universal. Having spread little by little, it has finally reached all

                   nations during the course of the twentieth century. There practically no longer exists a

                   single educated man on this globe who has not heard of Christ and His  creation. This

                   condition  being  fulfilled,  we  can  be  certain  now,  that,  as  the  Gospel  says,  we  have
                   reached the end of the old world and that the Son of Man is near, even at the doors .
                     We shall now see how Jesus described His second Advent, which characterizes the

                   new Era or the Cycle of the Holy Ghost. Here is a grandiose description of it, handed

                   down to us by Saint Matthew.
                     Immediately after the tribulation of those days, shall the sun be darkened, and the

                   moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the

                   heavens shall be shaken.

                     And then shall appear the Son of Man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the
                   earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of Man coming in the clouds of heaven with

                   power and great glory.

                     And He shall send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather
                   together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other .

                        Matthew, XXIV, 33.
                        Matthew XXIV, 29-31.
