"And what rough beast, its hour come round at last. slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?"

1 Thes 5:19.

W.B. Yeats

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
Troubles my sight: a waste of desert sand;
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
Wind shadows of the indignant desert birds.
The darkness drops again but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

We are being prepared for the Reign of Antichrist. The Rev. P. Huchede, in his work entitled "History of Antichrist," explains the religious preparation, both intellectual and moral, for the Reign of Antichrist which will arrive after economic collapse:

"But how shall he deprive the world of Christianity and have himself adored as God? Alas, it is only too true that the minds and hearts of men are admirably disposed for revolution and consequently ready to accept and bear the cruel yoke of such a tyrant. Revolution as the word itself implies means a subversion, but a subversion of all that is true, good, beautiful, and grand in the universe. It is the subversion of religion, representing its dogmas as myths and its moral teachings as tyranical. It is the subversion of authority. Licentiousness under the name of liberty becomes the order of the day; each one is invested with the right to govern himself. It is the subversion of reason: and do we not find leading minds in some of the most enlightened nations denying the principle of contradiction and maintaining the absolute identity of all beings? Revolution is therefore essentially destructive, and it becomes cosmopolitan by the action of secret societies scattered throughout the world.

Is it not true to say that the 'mystery of iniquity' is prepared in secret revolutionary dens? But it does not suffice to destroy; it is absolutely necessary to build up again. The world cannot subsist long in a vacuum. It must have a religion; it must have a philosophy; it must have an authority. Revolution will furnish all these. Instead of the reasonable and supernatural religion of Jesus Christ, Revolution will preach Pantheism. The God-humanity will impart the theurgic spirit and thus lead men to adore the demon as the author of universal emancipation...What frightful immorality must follow in the train of this shameless prostitution of religion! Never has the threefold concupiscence made greater ravage among mankind. And this is the religion sought and hoped for as the cherished boon of the aspirations of our modern free thinkers. To our Christian philosophy, the honor of humanity's revolution will substitute a babel of extravagant and absurd ideas. Instead of a mild and efficient authority consecrated alike by Church and state, despotism* and anarchy will rise up and contend for the shreds of religious liberty and human policy...if the state of perversion continue for a while longer, he [Antichrist] will find the world prepared to receive and serve him." (Rev. P. Huchede, History of Antichrist, pp. 13-14, Tan Books).

As Christians we must be prepared to face various persecutions.  Most importantly, we must take all means, especially through prayer, to defeat the Father of Lies (John 8:44).  A Bernardine Sister was shown the devastation which Satan would bring into the world and Our Lady gave her the following prayer to say:

"August Queen of Heaven!  Sovereign Mistress of the Angels!  You, who from the beginning have received from God the power and the mission to crush the head of Satan, we humbly beseech you to send your holy legions, that under your command, and by your power, they may pursue the evil spirits.  Encounter them on every side, resist their bold attacks, and drive them hence into the abyss of eternal woe.  Amen." (Taken from the book Prophecy for Today).

All of those who place their confidence in themselves will be lost.  A time of unprecedented confusion and darkness is now upon us.  A period of diabolical disorientation.  Have recourse to daily prayer and regular penance.  Frequent the sacraments as often as possible.  Pray the Rosary and consecrate yourself to the Immaculata each and every day.

The rough beast is about to reveal himself to the world.

Having witnessed "gay pride" demonstrations in Boston and a "Catholic" ministry committed toward promoting sodomy, I too believe the Man of Sin is near.

I think we're already a remnant Church. Think of the number of Catholics who routinely practice fornication, homosexuality, adultery, abortion, contraception and all of the other evils. A Majority of those who profess Catholicism now support "gay marriage."

I don't think we have very much time left now. Build yourself an ark and pray. The chaos that's coming is going to be devastating.
