For whose sake did Christ say the period of papal persecution would be shortened?


"And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those
days shall be shortened." Verse 22.
NOTE-Through the influence of the Reformation of the sixteenth century, and the movements
which grew out of it, the power of the Papacy to enforce its decrees against those it pronounced heretics
was gradually lessened, until with the exception of Spain, persecution ceased almost wholly about the
middle of the eighteenth century -the beginning of an epoch of freedom.
