1. According to Euro News, violent thunderstorms and torrential rains have caused chaos across southern Europe. In Italy, much of the Sicilian city of Ca-ta-nia was turned into a raging river with strong waters carrying away vehicles. The situation was worse in Greece where one woman died and dozens of commuters were trapped in their cars after a torrential downpour swamped the capital city of Athens. Power outages darkened large parts of the city, a river broke its banks and traffic jams brought much of Athens to a standstill. Weather reports said that "this is the worst storm since 1961."
2. According to Reuters, Iran has begun installing advanced centrifuges at its main uranium enrichment plant, a defiant step that worries Western powers ahead of a resumption of talks with Tehran this week. In a confidential report, the IAEA said 180 centrifuges and empty centrifuge casings had been put in place at the facility near the town of Natanz in central Iran. If launched successfully, such machines could enable Iran to significantly speed up its accumulation of material that the West fears will be used to devise a nuclear weapon.
3. According to The Christian Post, Sa-eed A-be-di-ni, the American pastor serving an 8-year prison sentence in Iran, is being pressured by his captors into converting back to Islam, but he says that that will never happen. In a letter obtained by the American Center for Law and Justice, A-be-di-ni said the Iranians will never get him to recant and he expressed his gratitude to the over 260,000 people who have signed a petition calling for his release.
4. According to The Los Angeles Times, much of the western United States continues to struggle with unusually dry conditions, raising the prospect of another year of wildfires, stunted crops and un-navigable stretches of river in various parts of the country. The National Drought Early Warning Outlook report said that more than two-thirds of the country is under abnormally dry to exceptional drought conditions. While the report said the drought was over in most of the nation east of the Mississippi River, the portion of the country still facing drought -- most of the West and Florida -- should expect it "to persist or intensify."
5. According to The Telegraph of Great Britain, the Eurozone is expected to stay in a recession for another year. The European Commission painted a gloomy picture of the eurozone's troubled economy, saying that unemployment is "unacceptably high" and that hiring is expected "to shrink further for some quarters". Having forecast late last year that the eurozone would grow 0.1 percent this year, it changed its position, forecasting that the 17-nation bloc would shrink 0.3 percent in 2013.
Jesus Christ said in Mark 13:35-37: "Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch."
