Worker Finds A Message From 1941 Hidden In The Roof Of This Church And It’s Giving A Different Perspective On Life

Worker Finds A Message From 1941 Hidden In The Roof Of This Church And It's Giving A Different Perspective On Life

If a time capsule exists, it must be this hidden note which has just been discovered in the ornament at St. James’s Church in Antwerp, Belgium. The worker who made the discovery found a tiny sheet of paper carefully wrapped in a box of matches and placed inside a keystone that connects the vaults of the ceiling.

Upon closer inspection, it was determined that the note dates back to July 21, 1941. But the text scribbled inside it turned out to be more peculiar than the finding itself.

Signed by four men, John Janssen, Jul Gyselinck, Louis Chantraine, and Jul Van Hemeldonck, it revealed the grim times and poor conditions they were working in. Astonishingly, the men had a thing to say to future generations too, and it’s sincerely beyond touching.
