From the Prophet Amos 8:11- DR
Behold the days come, saith the Lord, and I will send forth a famine into the land; not a famine of bread, nor a thirst of water, but of hearing the word of the Lord. And they shall move from sea to sea, and from the north to the east: they shall go about seeking the word of the Lord, and shall not find it. In that day the fair virgins, and the young men shall faint for thirst.
This is why God so many years ago called for the time of the laity.
Get ready, become holy.
Learn how to become perfect. That holiness and personal trust in God will keep you safe in the Faith in the time of famine, when you shall no longer hear the Truth, except in your own souls.
"Build a cell inside your mind, from which you can never flee." St Catherine of Siena
