It’s a mysterious passage in the Book of Revelation: after the death of the Antichrist and the destruction of his “beast” system, St. John describes a “resurrection” of the Church before the end of time:
Blessed and holy is the one who shares in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over these; they will be priests of God and of Christ, and they will reign with him for [the] thousand years. (Revelation 20:6)
What is this resurrection? Citing Scripture, Tradition, and private revelation together, a beautiful future for the Church emerges… one in which her holiness will shine to the ends of the earth. Read The Resurrection of the Church by Mark Mallett at The Now Word.
