Mark 13:1-8 (Gospel)

1
Then as He went out of the temple, one of His disciples said to Him, “Teacher, see what manner of stones and what buildings are here!”
2
And Jesus answered and said to him, “Do you see these great buildings? Not one stone shall be left upon another, that shall not be thrown down.”
3
Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives opposite the temple, Peter, James, John, and Andrew asked Him privately,
4
Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign when all these things will be fulfilled?
5
And Jesus, answering them, began to say: “Take heed that no one deceives you.
6
For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am He,’ and will deceive many.
7
But when you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be troubled; for such things must happen, but the end is not yet.
8
For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be famines and troubles. These are the beginnings of sorrows.
