Wrath Of God - The Days Of The Antichrist
Fr. Livio Fanzaga


What should Catholics believe about the end of the world?

Now, the answers -- in a major new book saluted by the Vatican’s newspaper, L’Osservatore Romano


The end of the world is an unmistakeable focus of Christ’s teaching. Yet contemporary Catholic preaching ignores it -- leaving it almost exclusively to Protestants, and to the growing number of believers in private revelations or Marian messages.

“This book does not intend further to multiply such messages,” writes Fr. Livio Fanzago, a Rome-educated theologian and director of Europe’s largest Catholic radio network, Radio Maria. Instead, Fr. Livio seeks to acquaint ordinary Catholics with the Biblical and Church teachings necessary "to evaluate various kinds of speculation about the end of the world" ... to read the signs of the times and recognize the evils of our age ... to prepare ourselves spiritually for the end whenever it may come ... and to discern the answers to such urgently important questions as:


  • What will be the content of the "supreme religious deception" that will lead countless Catholics to abandon their faith? Can we see it already at work in our own time?


  • Will the Antichrist be a clerical traitor? A religious leader? A politician? A collective phenomenon? Some combination?


  • How will the Antichrist succeed in posing as the friend, even protector, of the Catholic Church -- while seducing its members into apostasy and destroying its authority?


  • Which of us will be most vulnerable to seduction? Which of us will best prepared to persevere -- and how will we be put to the test?


  • Will the Antichrist's appearance coincide with the end of the world? Or must a "thousand year kingdom" elapse first?


  • Which prophetic visions or private revelations about the end times fall within the bounds of right doctrine? Which don't?


  • Have the end times begun?


The two lengthy radio speeches by Fr. Livio from which this book is adapted created a sensation when first broadcast. Their focus was two "prophetic" Catholic novels written nearly a century ago -- Msgr. Robert Hugh Benson's Lord of the World, and Vladimir Soloviev's Tale of the Antichrist. Drawing countless prophecies and insights from these two books -- which he carefully evaluates in the light of Scripture, magisterial teaching, and recent history -- Fr. Livio compiles a persuasive and vivid portrait not only of the Antichrist, but of the world as it will be when it welcomes him. Highlights:


  • Precise meaning of the term "Antichrist" -- used only in St. John's letters, but clearly present in other New Testament texts. How the Old Testament prefigures it


  • The New Testament’s “clear and well structured line of thought” on the Antichrist -- from Jesus’s preaching, to St. Paul’s letter to the Thessalonians, to the writings of St. John


  • Society in the end times: “From a materialist perspective, splendid." (Sound familiar?)


  • Why Benson portrays the Antichrist as an American


  • The growth of apostasy, and the betrayal of the Church from within


  • Why Catholic tradition has consistently rejected the notion of an earthly "thousand year kingdom" preceding the end


  • How the reckoning between Christ and His enemies "will not be played out in a dramatic conflict but in an attempt to impoverish the Church from within in an attempt to liquidate it"


  • How the Antichrist will pose as the savior of religion and bringer of universal peace


  • Why he will not be "someone sunken in immorality," but "the complete contrary"


  • Why Soloviev and Benson place the Antichrist's appearance at the transition from this millennium to the next


  • The common bonds linking Satan, the Antichrist par excellence, with the Antichrist, his representative on earth


  • The crucial moment in the life of the Antichrist -- "ultimately, it is exactly what happens to all of us"


  • The Antichrist as "the great conciliator and mediator," claiming to reconcile all philosophies and religions


  • Crucial to his plan: a "central coercive force which imposes peace on all." Is one in the making right now?


  • Catholicism, Orthodoxy and Protestantism in the final days


  • Why all religions except Catholicism -- including Buddhism, Hinduism, even Islam -- are attracted to (and will ultimately be seduced by) what Benson called "humanitarian religion"


  • How Benson's predicted "humanitarian religion" corresponds exactly to the New Age phenomenon


  • Two other prophetic predictions in Benson's novel, both corroborated in our own time


  • How the Church will end its history by reliving the Passion of Christ


  • Why the true Catholic “hesitates in the face of private revelations which put a specific date” on the end of the world


  • 4 spiritual “weapons” that faithful Catholics must arm themselves with for the “good fight” at the end of time -- the time of great deception and persecution of the Church


  • Explained in accordance with Catholic doctrine -- these (and many other) apocalyptic terms, symbols and prophecies:


The great tribulation * The abomination of desolation in God's holy temple * The Man of Iniquity * Gog and Magog * The great seduction * The deception of false prophets * The great persecution * The parousia of Christ * The Son of Perdition

Fr. Livio seeks to illuminate not only the when, but the how of the world's end. His insights will fill our hearts with peace, because in discerning God's plan for us, the meaning of our personal existence, as well as of man’s history, is revealed.

This item received 4 stars overall. Very informative book

     The Wrath of God: Days of the Antichrist is an extremely informative book on the apocalypse.  About age 16 I had been interested in finding out more about what was going to happen, so I read through the Douay-Rheims Revelations a few times.  As informative as it was I found myself lost.  So I searched for books that would give me more insight.  Wrath of God was the first one to come up.  I still remember many parts of the book distinctly even after three years of finishing it.   

     The book goes into detail, not only on matters that we are sure of, but also matters we can't really decipher ourselves.  It gives many meanings of things accepted by the Church as possibilities to what it may mean, then explains in detail how we really don't know for sure.  For what we do know it explains in detail, and makes it easy for the reader to grasp and understand.  It also Full Review...
