Volcanic Burning of the Vatican City
 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning,
and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth
her.  And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived
deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see
smoke of her burning,  Standing afar off for the fear of her torment,
saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour
is thy judgment come.  The merchants of these things, which were
made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment,
weeping and wailing,  For in one hour so great riches is come
to naught. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and
sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,  And cried
when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this
great city!  And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping
and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all
that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! For in one hour is she made
