“Christ and His Church bestow on mankind the pearl of greatest price by receiving its members into His Mystical Body, the one Ark of Salvation, however battered or storm tossed she may be. Christ grants human persons the greatest privilege imaginable on earth by choosing them to be members of His kingdom on earth.” Father Vincent Miceli, S.J. from the book ‘The antiChrist’ Photo: Yan Yu on Pinterest
“The history of the Catholic Church is a long procession in which precursors of the Antichrist appear, age after age, to attempt the destruction of the Catholic Church.
There are truly dark disorders in the Catholic Church today and in the darkness many souls become confused, unable to put events into their proper perspective; they become irritated when there is no sign of light and are tempted to panic.
They become angered when led astray by false shepherds and are tempted to bolt from the flock of Christ, to go off on their own.
In a time of dark disorder it is a time for standing fast and fighting.
In the darkness of Calvary, Mary and John remained standing beside the cross. Many of Christ’s disciples – including the first Pope – fled.
Dark disorder, then, is a challenge to fidelity, to take our stand beside Mary and John beneath the cross of the dying Christ.
The devil and his antichrists never give up, nor will ever give up, as long as the time of man’s trial and pilgrimage on earth lasts.
Soldiers of Christ must match this determination for evil with their own determination for sanctity.” Jean Ousset in ‘The AntiChrist
