CHAPTER THIRTY-NINE

Period of Peace

St. Anna Maria Taigi (d. 1837, recently canonized by Pope John Paul II) - After the three days of darkness, Sts. Peter and Paul, having come down from heaven, will preach throughout the world and designate a new pope. A great light will flash from their bodies and will settle upon the cardinal, the future pontiff. Then Christianity will spread throughout the world. Whole nations will join the Church shortly before the reign of the Anti-Christ. These conversions will be amazing. Those who shall survive shall have to conduct themselves well. There shall be innumerable conversions of heretics, who will return to the bosom of the Church; all will note the edifying conduct of their lives, as well as that of all other Catholics. Russia, England, and China will come into the Church.

St. Hildegarde: "Peace will return when the Lily ascends the Throne again. The land will be very productive."

St. Francis of Paola (15th Century) "By the grace of the Almighty, the great Monarch will annihilate heretics and unbelievers. He will have a great army, and angels will fight at his side. He will be like the sun among the stars. His influence will spread over the whole earth. All in all, there will be on earth twelve Kings, one Emperor, one Pope, and a few Princes. They will all lead holy lives."

Caesar (6th Century)    "He will assist the Pope in the reformation of the world."

St. Methodius (385) - A time will come when the enemies of Christ will boast; "We have subjected the earth and all its inhabitants, and the Christians cannot escape our hands." Then a Roman emperor will rise in fury against them...Drawing his sword he will fall on the foes of Christianity and crush them. Then peace and quiet will reign on earth, and the priests will be relieved of their anxieties.

St. Methodius (385) - In the last period Christians will not appreciate the great grace of God who provided a Great Monarch, a long duration of peace, a splendid fertility of the earth. They will be very ungrateful, lead a sinful life, in pride, vanity, unchastity, frivolity, hatred, avarice, gluttony and many other vices the the sins of men will stink more than a pestilence before God. Many men will doubt whether the Catholic faith is the true and only saving one and whether the Jews are perhaps correct when they still expect the Messias. Many will be the false teachings and bewilderment. The just God will in consequence give Lucifer and all his devils power to come on earth and tempt his godless creatures.

St. Caesar of Arles (469-453) - At the same time there will be a great Pope, who will be most eminent in sanctity and most perfect in every quality. This Pope shall have with him, the Great Monarch, a most virtuous man, who shall be a scion of the holy race of the French kings. This Great Monarch will assist the Pope in the reformation of the whole earth. Many princes and nations that are living in error shall be converted, and an admirable peace shall reign among men during many years, because the wrath of God shall be appeased through their repentance, penance, and good works. There will be one common law, one only faith, one baptism, one religion. All nations shall recognize the Holy See of Rome and shall pay homage to the Pope.

John of the Cleft Rock (1340) - God will raise up a holy Pope over whom the angels will rejoice. Enlightened by God, this man will reconstruct almost the entire world through his holiness and lead all to the true faith, and everywhere fear of God, virtue, and good morals will be dominant. He will lead all erring sheep back to the fold, and there shall be only one faith, one law, one rule of life, one baptism on earth. All men will love each other and do good, and all quarrels and war will disappear.

St. Bridget: "And the earth shall enjoy peace and prosperity."

St. John-Mary Vianney, Cur of Ars (19th Century): "This shall re-establish a peace and prosperity without precedent."

St. Hildegarde: "Peace will return when the Lily ascends the Throne again. The land will be very productive."

St. Bridget: "And the earth shall enjoy peace and prosperity."

St. John-Mary Vianney, Cure of Ars (19th Century): "This shall re-establish a peace and prosperity without precedent."

P St. Cathrine of Siena (d.1380) - The bride (Church) now all deformed and clothed in rags, will then gleam with beauty and jewels and crowned with the diadem of all virtue. All believing nations will rejoice and have such excellent and holy shepherds, and the unbelieving world attracted by the glory of the Church, will be converted to her.

Venerable Mary of Agreda (17th Century) “It was revealed to me that through the intercession of the Mother of God, all heresies will disappear. This victory over heresies has been reserved by Christ for His Blessed Mother... Before the Second Coming of Christ, Mary must, more than ever, shine in mercy, might and grace in order to bring unbelievers into the Catholic Faith.

Our Lady of America 1956 - "It is the United States that is to lead the world to peace, the peace of Christ, the peace that He brought with Him from heaven. 

"Dear children, unless the United States accepts and carries out faithfully the mandate given to it by heaven to lead the world to peace, there will come upon it and all nations a great havoc of war and incredible suffering.

“If, however, the United States is faithful to this mandate from heaven and yet fails in the pursuit of peace because the rest of the world will not accept or cooperate, then the United States will not be burdened with the punishment about to fall."

"Sin is overwhelming the world and punishment is not far away.  ... Help me bring once again the sunshine of God's peace upon the world."

Cataldus of Tarentino (cir.500) - The Great Monarch will be in war until he is 40 years of age; a King of the House of Lily, he will assemble great armies and expel tyrants from his empire...the Turk and barbarians he will subdue and have all men worship the Crucified One. He will at length lay down his crown in Jerusalem.

Monk Adso (10th Century): "Some of our teachers say that a King of the Franks will possess the entire Roman Empire. He will be the greatest and last of all Monarchs. After having wisely governed his kingdom, he will go into Jerusalem and will lay his sceptre and his crown upon the Mount of Olives. Immediately afterwards, Antichrist will come."

St. Vincent Ferrer (14th Century) “In the days of peace that are to come after the desolation of revolutions and wars, before the end of the world, the Christians will become so lax in their religion that they will refuse to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation, saying, "It is an unnecessary Sacrament."

St. Vincent Ferrer (d. 1418) - In the days of peace that are to come after the desolation of revolutions and wars, before the end of the world, the Christians will become so lax in their religion that they will refuse to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation, saying "it is an unnecessary Sacrament"; and when the false prophet and the Anti-Christ comes, all who are not confirmed will apostatize, while those who are confirmed will stand firm in the faith, and only a few will renounce Christ.

St. John Chrysotom - The world will be faithless and degenerate after the birth of the Anti-Christ.
