Questi sono i nuovi secoli bui. Centinaia di anni fa, l’Europa toccava il fondo del disagio e della sofferenza: la popolazione si accalcava troppo numerosa, moriva di fame, sprofondava nel peccato e nella disperazione. Come una foresta troppo fitta e soffocata dai rami secchi, gli europei erano in attesa del fulmine di Dio, di quella scintilla che avrebbe finalmente innescato l’incendio su tutto il continente e lo avrebbe liberato dai rami secchi, restituendo la luce del sole alle radici sane.
