Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich, 1774-1824, was a German nun who had under religious ecstasy many revelations of the Virgin Mary. Emmerich was beatified on October 3, 2004, by Pope John Paul II inspired by her Piety.
It follows her revelation of April 22, 1823.
“I saw that many pastors allowed themselves to be taken up with ideas that were dangerous to the Church. They were building a great, strange, and extravagant Church. Everyone was to be admitted in it in order to be united and have equal rights: Evangelicals, Catholics sects of every description. Such was to be the new Church… But God had other designs…”
“I see that when the Second Coming of Christ approaches, a bad priest will do much harm to the Church. When the time of the reign of Antichrist is near, a false religion will appear which will be opposed to the unity of God and His Church. This will cause the greatest schism the world has ever known. The nearer the time of the end, the more the darkness of Satan will spread on earth, the greater will be the number of the children of corruption, and the number of the just will correspondingly diminish…”
“They built a large, singular, extravagant church which was to embrace all creeds with equal rights: Evangelicals, Catholics, and all denominations, a true communion of the unholy with one shepherd and one flock. There was to be a Pope, a salaried Pope, without possessions. All was made ready, many things finished; but, in place of an altar, were only abomination and desolation. Such was the new church to be, and it was for it that he had set fire to the old one; but God designed otherwise…”
“I came to the Church of Peter and Paul (Rome) and saw a dark world of distress, confusion, and corruption, through which shone countless graces from thousands of saints who repose there…”
“I saw the fatal consequences of this counterfeit church: I saw it increase; I saw heretics of all kinds flocking to the city. I saw the ever-increasing tepidity of the clergy, the circle of darkness ever widening…”
“Again I saw in the midst of these disasters the twelve new Apostles laboring in different countries, unknown to one another, each receiving streams of living water from on high. They all did the same work. They know not whence they received their tasks; but as soon as one was finished, another was ready for them…”
“The Jews shall return to Palestine, and become Christians toward the end of the world.”
The revelation depicts horrifically the Roman Catholic Church at The End Times except for “twelve new Apostles laboring in different countries” and the Jewish acceptance of Christ as the true Messiah.
The acceptance will occur during the Illumination of Conscience. The Jews have returned to Palestine and Christ will address privately every Jew of reasoning age and will prove He was the Messiah promised in the Old Testament. The Jews generally rejected Christ and delivered Him to Pilate for Death on a cross, because they envisioned the Messianic liberation of Israel from Roman occupation.
The “twelve new Apostles laboring in different countries” are part the Immaculate Mary’s salvific plan, and would labor under the joint guidance of the Blessed Mother and the Holy Spirit.
