FROM AUSSIE MUM:
“It makes sense that Modern Times which started with dismembering the Church would end with the triumph of Mary’s Immaculate Heart, that Heart that gave its all to bring the Church to birth. Our Lord would surely want this for His Mother before the end of the world given all that she suffered in solidarity with Him for our sakes.
“Venerable Fulton Sheen seemed to think that the anti-Christ is imminent. I don’t necessarily agree. The spirit of anti-Christ has certainly taken hold though and that is what I think our Immaculate Mother will triumph over. Our Lady said, “In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me and she will be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world” (July 13th, 1917). Hence, the world does not come to an end with her triumph, not until after a period of peace has followed. Presumably the anti-Christ will arrive during that peaceful period, destroying it, and Our Lord will deal with him directly.
“In summary, the period Venerable Fulton Sheen speaks of is, I think, two linked periods which were introduced by the visual presentation of the Woman of the Apocalypse in 1531, setting the scene for both:
(1) the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary over the Spirit of anti-Christ rampant today; and
(2) the end of history, Christ dealing directly with the anti-Christ.
