I believe that we are at the end of an age. That soon will appear a Great Catholic Monarch. I don’t believe that we are at the End of the World but that a particular age is coming to a closure.
At the close of this age, a Great Catholic is prophesied to come. The following are prophecies from Catholic saints and mystics concerning this Great Monarch.
Hyppolitus (235 AD)
”The Great French Monarch, who shall subject all the East, shall come around the end of the world …. ”
St. Methodius (385 AD)
“A time will come when the enemies of Christ will boast: ‘We have subjected the earth and all its inhabitants, and the Christians cannot escape our hands: Then a Roman Emperor will rise in great fury against them, drawing his sword, he will fall upon the foes of Christianity and crush them. Then peace and quiet will reign on earth, and the priests will he relieved of all their anxieties.”
St. Cataldus of Tatentino (500 AD)
”The Great Monarch will be in war till he is forty years of age; a King of the House of Lily, he will assemble great armies and expel tyrants from his empire. He will conquer England and other Island empires. Greece he will invade and he made King thereof, Clochis, Cyprus, the Turks, and barbarians he will subdue and have all men to worship the Crucified one. He will at length lay down his crown in Jerusalem.”
St. Remigius (535 AD)
”The kingdom of France is predestined by God for the defense of the Roman Church, which is the only true Church of Christ. This Kingdom shall one day be great among the kingdoms of the earth, and shall embrace all the limits of the Roman Empire, and shall submit all their kingdoms to its own scepter. It shall last until the end of time. It shall be victorious and prosperous as long as it will remain faithful to the Holy Roman See, and will not be guilty of any of those crimes which ruin nations; but it shall be rudely punished every time that it will become unfaithful to its vocation.”
St. Caesar of Aries (469 AD)
“When the entire world, and in a special manner France, and in France more particularly the provinces of the North, of the east, and above all, that of Lorraine and Champagne, shall have been a prey to the greatest miseries and trials, then the provinces shall be succored by a prince, who had been exiled in his youth, and who shall recover the crown of the lilies.
“This prince shall extend his dominion over the entire universe. At the same time there will be a great Pope, who will be most eminent in sanctity and most perfect in every quality. This Pope shall have with him, the Great Monarch, a most virtuous man, who shall be a scion of the holy race of the French Kings. This Great Monarch will assist the Pope in the reformation of the whole earth. Many princes and nations that are living in error and impiety shall be converted, and an admirable peace shall be appeased through their repentance, penance, and good works. There will be one common law, one only faith, one baptism, one religion, All nations shall recognize the Holy See of Rome, and shall pay homage to the Pope. But after some considerable time, fervor shall cool, iniquity shall abound, and moral corruption shall become worse than ever, which shall bring upon mankind the last and worse persecution of Anti-Christ, and then the end of the world.”
Leo the Philosopher (911 AD)
‘There will arise an imperial deliverer, an oriental Frederick–who will save the kingdom and the people.”
Monk Adso (992 AD)
“Some of our teachers say that a King of the Franks will possess the entire Roman Empire. This King will be the greatest and last of all monarchs, and after having prosperously governed his kingdom. He will come in the end to Jerusalem and he will lay down his scepter and his crown upon the Mount of Olives. This will be the end and consummation of the Empire of Rome, and immediately afterwards Anti-Christ will come.”
Monk Hilarion (1476 AD)
“Before the Christian churches are renovated and united. God will semi the Eagle (Karl?) who will travel to Rome and bring much happiness and good. The Holy Man (Pope?) will bring peace between the clergy and the Eagle …. ”
Werdin d’Otante ( 1300 AD)
‘The Great Monarch and the Great Pope will precede Anti- Christ. The nations will be in wars for four years and a great part of the world will be destroyed. All the sects will vanish. The capital of the world will fall. The Pope will go over the sea carrying the sign of redemption on his forehead, and after the victory of the Pope and the Great Monarch peace will reign on earth.”
Blessed Catherine of Racconigi ( 1547 AD)
“After three centuries, a descendant of Frances I of France will rule Europe like Charlemagne.”
David Pareaus ( 1622 AD)
“The Great Monarch will be of French descent, large forehead, large dark eyes, light brown hair and an eagle nose. He will crush the enemies of the Pope and will conquer the East.”
Holzhauser ( 1658 AD)
“When everything has been ruined by war; when Catholics are hard pressed by traitorous co-religionists and heretics, when the Church and her servants are denied their rights, the monarchies have been abolished and their rulers murdered, (1922) then the Hand of Almighty God will work a marvelous change, something apparently impossible according to human understanding. There will arise a VALIANT MONARCH anointed by God. He will he a Catholic, a descendant of Louis IX, yet, a descendant of an ancient imperial German family, born in exile. He will rule supreme in temporal matters. The Pope will rule supreme in spiritual matters at the same time. Persecution will cease and justice shall reign. Religion seems to be oppressed, but by the changes of entire kingdoms it will be made more firm.
“He will root out false doctrines and destroy the rule of Muslimism. His dominion will extend from the East to the West. All nations will adore God their Lord according to Catholic teaching. There will be many wise and just men. The people will love justice, and peace will reign over the whole earth, for divine power will bind Satan for many years until the coming of the Son of Perdition-(the Antichrist) ….. “Most of the prophesies used so far are only a few lines from the actual works, but the next one I will use about my star character will be in its entirety and it is quite lengthy. It is very repetitious but because of the author and the reason he wrote it, I will not edit it. It was written by one of the greatest of all saints, St. Francis de Paul, in 1470 AD, and the reason for his writing it in the first place is very interesting.
In the twelfth century Abbot Merlin Joachem predicted that the “Great Monarch” would come from the bloodline of King Pepin. In the thirteenth century, King Philip of France, of the same bloodline, decided, through his sinful pride, that he was that man. When the Pope and the Pope’s army, the Knights Templars, did not accept him as the “Great Monarch”, he contrived a plan to have the Pope and then the Templars killed.
For the next hundred years this caused much confusion regarding all these prophesies. The so-called (bloodline), that was once held in such great esteem, had now lost its respect. The Templars, who had always protected the family of this blood line were now in hiding, and no longer were visibly protecting the family. The respect and fear were gone.
In 1470AD, King Louis XI of France, depressed over the situation, asked in a letter, the greatest mystic Saint of the time, St. Francis de Paul, to explain the situation once and for all. The following letter was Saint Francis de Paul’s answer.
Saint Francis de Paul (1470 AD)
“From your lordship, Simeon de Limena, Lord of Montalto, shall be born the great leader of the holy militia of the Holy Spirit, which shall overcome the world, and shall possess the earth so completely that no king or lord shall be able to exist except he belongs to the sacred host of the Holy Ghost. These devout men shall wear on their breasts, and much more within their hearts, the sign of the living God, namely, the Cross. (Knights Templar?)
“The first members of this holy order, shall be natives of the city of ——– where iniquity, vice, and sin abound. However, they shall be converted from evil to good; from rebels against God they shall become most fervent and most faithful in His divine service. That city shall be cherished by God and by the Great Monarch, the elect and the beloved of the Most High Lord. For the sake of that place all holy souls who have done penance in it shall pray in the sight of God for that city and for its inhabitants. When the time shall come of the immense and most right justice of the Holy Spirit His Divine· Majesty wills that such city become converted to God and that many of its citizens follow the great prince of the holy army. The first person that will openly wear the sign of the living God shall belong to that city because he will through a letter be commanded by a holy hermit to have it impressed in his heart and to wear it externally on his breast.
“That man will begin to meditate on the secrets of God, about the long visitation which the Holy Spirit will make and the dominion that he will exercise over the world through the holy militia. Oh happy man, who shall receive from the Most High the greatest privileges! He will interpret the hidden secrets of the Holy Ghost, and he shall often excite the admiration of men by his revealed knowledge of the internal secrets of their hearts. Rejoice, my Lord, because that Prince above other princes, and King over other kings, will hold you in the greatest veneration, and after having been crowned with three most admirable crowns, will exalt that city, will declare it free, and the seat of the Empire, and it shall become one of the first cities of the world.
“You and your consort desire to have children; you shall have them. Your holy offspring shall be admired upon earth. Among your descendants there will be one who shall be like the sun amidst the stars. He shall be a first-born son: in his childhood he will be like a saint: in his youth. a great sinner: then he will be converted entirely to God and will do great penance: his sins will be forgiven him, and he shall become a great saint.
“He shall he a great captain and prince of holy men, who shall be called ‘the Holy Cross-bearers of Jesus Christ, with whom he shall destroy the Mohammedan sect and the rest of the infidels. He shall reform the Church of God by means of his followers, who shall be the best men upon earth in holiness, in arms, in science, and in every virtue, because such is the will of the Most High. They shall obtain the dominion of the whole world, both temporal and spiritual, and they shall support the Church of God until the end of time.
“God Almighty will exalt a very poor man of the blood of the Emperor Constantine, son of St. Helena, and of the seed of Pepin, who shall on his breast wear the sign which you have seen at the beginning of this letter. Through the power of the Host High he shall confound the tyrants, the heretics, and the infidels. He will gather a grand army, and the angels shall fight for them. They shall kill all God’s enemies.
“From the beginning of the world, after the creation of man, and to the end of human generation, there have been and there shall be seen wonderful events upon the earth. Four hundred years shall not pass when his Divine Majesty shall visit the world with a new religious order much needed, which shall effect more good among men than all other religious institutions combined.
“This religious order shall be the last and the best in the Church: it shall proceed with arms, with prayer, and with hospitality. Woe to tyrants, to heretics, and to infidels, to whom no pity shall be shown, because such is the will of the Most High. An infinite number of wicked men shall perish through the hands of the Cross-bearers, the true servants of Jesus Christ. They shall act like good husbandmen when they extirpate noxious weeds and prickly thistles from the wheat field. These holy servants of God shall purify the earth with the deaths of innumerable wicked men.
“How spiritually blind are those persons who, having no thought about the things of God, fix their end in earthly objects. Wretched men, far worse than the very beasts which are guided by their senses, because they cannot have reason: but when men abandon the use of their reason, they become brutalized.
“Hence they shall ever be in confusion. Let, therefore, the princes of this world be prepared for the greatest scourges to fall upon them, but from whom? First from heretics and infidels, then from the Holy and most faithful Cross-bearers elected by the Most High, who, not succeeding in converting heretics with science, shall have to make a vigorous use of their arms. Many cities and villages shall be in ruins, with the deaths of an innumerable quantity of bad and good men. The infidels (Moslems) also will fight against Christians and heretics, sacking and destroying. and killing the largest portion of Christians. Lastly, the army, styled ‘of the Church’, namely, the Holy Cross-barriers shall move, not against Christians or Christianity, but against the infidels in pagan countries, and they shall conquer all those kingdoms with the death of a very great number of infidels. After this they shall turn their victorious arms against BAD CHRISTIANS, and. shall destroy all the rebels against Jesus Christ. These Holy Cross-bearers shall reign and dominate totally over the world until the end of time. The founder of these holy men shall, my lord, be one of your posterity. But when shall this take place? When crosses with the stigmas shall be seen, and the crucifix shall be carried as the standard.
“The time is coming when his Divine Majesty will visit the world with a new religious order of Holy Cross-bearers, who wvill carry a crucifix, or the image of Our Crucified Lord, lifted up upon the principal standard in view of all. This standard will be admired by all good Catholics: but at the beginning it will be derided by BAD CHRISTIANS AND BY INFIDELS (Protestants and Moslems). Their sneers shall, however, be changed into mourning when they shall witness the wonderful victories achieved through it. Many wicked men and obstinate rebels against God shall perish.
Their souls will be plunged into Hell. This punishment shall fall upon all those transgressors of the Divine Commandments, who with new and false doctrines (Protestants) will attempt to corrupt mankind and turn men against the ministers of God’s worship. The same chastisement is due to all obstinate sinners, but not to those who sin through weakness, because these being converted, doing penance, and amending the conduct of their life, shall find the divine mercy of the Most High full of kindness towards them. O Holy Cross- bearers of the Most High Lord, how very pleasing you will be to the Great God, much more than the children of Israel. God will, through your instrumentality, work more wonderful prodigies than he has ever done before with any nation.
“You shall destroy the sect of Mahomet, and all infidels of every kind and of every sect. You shall put an end to all the heresies of the world by extinguishing all tyrants. You will remove every cause of complaint by establishing a universal peace, which shall last until the end of time (until the Anti-Christ). You will work the sanctification of mankind. O Holy Men: people blessed of the Most Holy Trinity! Your victorious founder shall triumph over the world, the flesh, and the Devil.
“One of your posterity shall achieve greater deeds and work greater wonders than your lordship. That man will be a great sinner in his youth, but like St. Paul, he shall be converted to God. He shall be the great founder of a new religious order different from all the others. He shall divide it into three classes, namely, Military Knights, Solitary priests, most pious Hospitallers. This shall be the last religious order in the Church, and it will do more good for our holy religion than all other religious institutes. By force of arms he shall take possession of a great kingdom. He shall destroy the sect of Mahomet, extirpate all tyrants and heresies. He shall bring the world to a holy mode of life. There will be one fold and one Shepherd. He shall reign until the end of time. On the whole earth there shall be only twelve kings, one emperor, and one pope. Rich gentlemen shall be very few, but all saints. May Jesus Christ be praised and blessed: for He has vouched to grant to me, a poor unworthy sinned, the spirit of prophecy. NOT IN AN OBSCURE WAY AS TO HIS OTHER SERVANTS, but has enabled me to write and to speak in a most clear manner. I know that unbelieving and reprobate persons will scoff at my letters and will reject them; hut they will he received by those faithful Catholic souls who aspire to the possession of heaven. These letters shall infuse such sweetness of divine love in their hearts, that they will he delighted in pursuing them often, and in taking copies of them, because such is the will of the Most High. In these letters it will be found out who belongs to our blessed Lord Jesus Christ and who does not, who is a predestinate or a reprobate. Much better will this be known through the holy sign of the living God. He shall be a saint of God who will take it, love it, and wear it.”
