Ralph Martin continues to speak prophetically to the Church in his latest video. In his usual charitable, concise, and powerful way, he describes what appears to be an inevitable shipwreck of the Barque of Peter — and a great trial for the Catholic Church.
Before Christ’s second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers. The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth will unveil the “mystery of iniquity” in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the truth. The supreme religious deception is that of the Antichrist, a pseudo-messianism by which man glorifies himself in place of God and of his Messiah come in the flesh. —cf. Catechism of the Catholic Church, n. 675-676
