    • All Power has been given me
      • Go out and
        • …When they saw Him, they worshiped Him, but some doubted.
          Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me.
          Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit,…
          ( Matthew 28:18 )

          • Baptize all Nations
      • Pentecost

Sensus Fidelium

Prelude

A few weeks ago, I stumbled upon a set of videos published via YouTube by Sensus Fidelium.

 

Sensus Fidelium

Wikipedia
Sensus fidei (sense of the faith), also called sensus fidelium (sense of the faithful) when exercised by the body of the faithful as a whole, is “the supernatural appreciation of faith on the part of the whole people, when, from the bishops to the last of the faithful, they manifest a universal consent in matters of faith and morals“.

Quoting the document Lumen gentium of the Second Vatican Council, the Catechism of the Catholic Church adds: “By this appreciation of the faith, aroused and sustained by the Spirit of truth, the People of God, guided by the sacred teaching authority (Magisterium),… receives… the faith, once for all delivered to the saints… the People unfailingly adheres to this faith, penetrates it more deeply with right judgment, and applies it more fully in daily life.

The terms sensus fidei fidelium (sense of the faith on the part of the faithful) and sensus fidei fidelis (sense of the faith on the part of an individual member of the faithful) are also used.

End Times According to Robert Bellarmine

  1. Absolute Signs of end times by Saint Bellarmine
    1. Gospel preached all over the world
    2. And, Roman Empire terminated
  2. AC  manifestation hindered by
    • Political Might of the heathen Roman Empire
    • Lifted up and spiritualized by the Spiritual Power of the Church piercing through the Roman Empire and becoming Christendom
  3.  Society
    • Only two types of societies
      • Natural Society
        • With a political order which does not reference Lord’s incarnation
        • Once that society accepts those who do not live according to God’s commandments
          • That society drops to the level of those ruled by man’s nature
          • Foretold of the Post-Christian Period
      • And, another
        • Faithful to teaching of the Catholic Church
  4. AC  period can not come
    • Until the great apostasy
      • The falling away
    • No longer will the nations have unified faith of Lord and Order
      • Once the countries have left their unity with the Holy Father and the true faith
  5. The Man of Sin
    • The man of sin or so called AC will become manifest
  6. The AC coming for the Jews
    • Just as Christ first came to the Jews
    • And, then to the Gentiles
    • So will the AntiChrist
  7. AC will embody the Devil
  8. Time
    • The power which has hindered the development of the lawless one cannot simply be taken away by the AC
    • As that power is Divine
    • And, so it will have to wait till the appointed time
  9. The Power of the Roman Church
    • Shall transition into democracy
    • The gentile nation will reject Catholicism
    • leave the power of true God and return to paganism
  10. AC
    • Coming for the Jews
      • Another will come in his own name and you will not reject him
      • Born of Jewish stock
      • Just like Christ first came to the jews and later he joined the gentiles to himself, so will it be when the AC comes
      • The AC will come to the Jews who are awaiting him
      • And, then one after the other, he will subject the gentiles to himself
    • Will first come to those who are waiting to receive him
  11. Preaching of Enoch & Elijah
    • These two prophets
    • Enoch to Gentiles
    • Elijah to Jews
      • Jews will convert
    • Enoch and Elijah
      • Oppose the AC
      • Conserve the Jew
    • Restore all things
    • Elijah & Enoch will be killed
      • Revelations 11
      • 260 days clothed in Sackcloth
  12. Attacked Church
    • All evil men will get together and with open authority attack men in the Church
    • Hearts outside church, but body in Church
  13. Sit of AC?
    • As to the sit of AC, where will he rule
    • Saint Paul said that the AC will take upon the sit of God and claim to be God
    • Saint Robert
      • Rome
    • Jerome?
      • Jerusalem
        • Temple of Solomon, Temple of David
    • Saint Robert
      • Rome
        • Saint Peter
          • Apostolic See
    • None of the early Christian fathers use the word Temple for Christian Churches
  14. Prophecy is only fully understood in its fulfillment

                While he was in the hospital, Pope John Paul reviewed the Church’s documentation of Fatima and the Third Secret of Fatima. He was convinced that Our Lady of Fatima had saved his life. Later that year, he had a mosaic of the Virgin Mary (Mater Ecclesiae — Mother of the Church) installed on St. Peter’s Square. He went three times afterwards to the shrine of Fatima in Portugal (1982, 1991 and 2000) — to thank the Virgin Mary. On March 25, 1984, to fulfill the request of Our Lady of Fatima, the Pope consecrated the world — including Russia — to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and Communism collapsed soon afterward.As a measure of his gratitude, John Paul gave the bullet that was extracted from his abdomen to the shrine; the bullet today forms part of the crown of the statue of the Virgin of Fatima. During John Paul’s 2000 visit to Fatima, the third part of the message the Virgin gave to the three children in 1917 was revealed; it was a description of the assassination attempt on Pope John Paul: the “bishop clothed in white” who prays for all the faithful is the Pope. As he makes his way with great effort towards the Cross amid the corpses of those who were martyred (bishops, priests, men and women religious and many lay persons), he too falls to the ground, apparently dead, under a burst of gunfire.

    • What truly matters is that one has done so in the Spirit of Jesus Christ
    • It can not be felt from outside, but only when truly lived
    • We may not fully grasp the decisions made by those who have dedicated themselves to an intense spiritual life, but perhaps that is the point; that it should remain a mystery.
    • And, to truly understand such a life, one must live it
