You can read what you want into the meeting of the Pope and the Patriarch in Cuba next week (I know I do), but why not read Matthew 24... or even better yet, Matthew 25.
May your study lead you to knowing Christ, rather than your news reading lead you to your Bible conclusions.
Remember: prophecy is to give us confidence in God's plan as our surroundings may unravel. It's not been given to us to try and outsmart what God already knows is going to happen.
This is really important.
