A Dutch cardinal has said that Pope Francis’ failure to uphold the Church’s authentic faith makes him think of the Catechism of the Catholic Church’s prophecy of a “final trial” for the Church before the second coming of Christ.
Cardinal Willem Eijk, 64, the Archbishop of Utrecht, made the startling comment in an article published today at the National Catholic Register.
Startling? To whom?
I think the number of informed Catholics who haven't thought this pontificate could be the CCC prophecy of the Church's final trial could dance on the head of a pin.
The legacy of this papacy is Mundus vult decipi, ergo decipiatur!
If it isn't the prophecy, it might as well be.
