So, for the past 4 hours, I have been looking at Ven. Bartholomew Holzhauser. For those who don't know, he was a priest in the 16th century that asserted that he had received visions of End of Times, which, from my research, apparently go with what other Saints had written. More importantly, he also wrote about the 7 Ages of the Church.
Now, from my understanding, there will be a Great Monarch, one "Last" Roman Emperor, that will come and rule for an unspecified amount of time. Based on what this guy says
, the 5th Church Age will end with the arrival of a Holy Peter the Roman, and he will bring in some Monarch that will usher in a period of greatness in the Church, etc(this is the only thing I disagree with from what he is stating0.
That's all when and good, but more importantly, when I think aobut it, Peter the Roman is Petre Romanus in Saint Malechy's Prophecies that allegedly mean (with high amount of evidence), Pope Francis. I don't get how Petre Romanus could do that considering Pope Francis has done various things that are heretical(to my knowldge anyway).
A simple good search of his name, and you will find this website (http://www.afterthewarningto2038.com/catholic-prophecy.php
). Now, I don't agree with the timeline. Nevertheless, from what Fr. Ripperger has stated, Our Lady stated that they would be a period of "grace", which I think coincides with what Ven Holzhauser stated.
The thing that confuses me though is this? From my understanding, Our Lady has, throughout the history of the Church, called for Penance in times of great distress because God is angry at us. More importantly, she also at times tell us Christ's coming is near. This coincides with Our Lady of Kibeho, where she stated Christ is coming soon. A bunch of other Protestants have also affirmed this as well, and I have always believed right now, we are in the end of times.
Additionally, my understanding of Saint Malechi's prophecies is that Petre Romanus will usher in the age of the Anti-Christ, so that perplexes me slightly.
Help would be appreciated in answering my feelings on the matter.
