The Mysteries of the End Times

               

1.  The Triumph of the Immaculate Heart, the Covenant of the Two Hearts, the Second Coming of Christ, the Second Pentecost, the New Advent, the Eucharistic Reign,  the Era of Peace, the New Jerusalem, the New Heavens and the New Earth, the Final Judgment and Parousia:  these are all concepts and revelations that are founded in Holy Scripture, Sacred Tradition, the writings of the Fathers and the Doctors and many of the Saints of the Church, and the Papal letters and encyclicals.  However, there remains mystery in all of these, and the Holy See has never taken an official stand on many of these subjects. 

               

That may be because they are prophetic and cannot be fully understood yet by the human mind.  Many priests and seminarians will even acknowledge that their study of the Book of Revelation and their training in mystical theology are both scanty and superficial. Throughout history in private revelation also, various aspects of the understanding and interpretation of some of these mysteries have been enhanced, even though they have been filtered through the humanness of many seers and prophets; and they remain mysteries.  However, the Church has always been founded on mysteries: the Holy Trinity, the Incarnation, the Passion, the Resurrection, and the Holy Mass and Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist.

               

On June 24, 1996 , Fr. Stefano Gobbi, a locutionist and the Founder of the Marian Movement of Priests, published a document in which he tried to piece together, in a way that was understandable to the ordinary Christian, many of these elements to provide a better explanation for the Church, both priests, religious  and the laity.  Pope John Paul II is known to have manifested great esteem for Fr. Gobbi and the Marian Movement of Priests.  This document is entitled, "The Triumph, The Second Coming and The Eucharistic Reign." In this document Gobbi tries to answer the question, "Is the return of Christ in glory to be interpreted as His return for the Last Judgment, or rather His return to reign on this earth?"  He answers the question in favor of the latter, on earth, without compromising the Church's teaching on the heresy of Millenarianism and by setting it apart for some extended period of time (literally 1000 years) from the Final Judgment and Parousia.

2 To Fr. Gobbi's understanding and interpretation, Our Lady of Emmitsburg added her words on this "new heaven and new earth" on November 1, 2002 , All Saints Day.

3.  Then in November, 2003, a compilation of all that Our Lady of Emmitsburg had shared with visionary and prophet Gianna Sullivan on these mysteries was released.  To Fr. Gobbi's understanding of the Eucharistic Reign was added by Our Lady of Emmitsburg the role of the Christ Child and all the virtues He embodies.  This document was read and approved for distribution by many priest mystical and Marian theologians, scholars and spiritual directors.  It also corrects the grave errors and misrepresentations of many of the detractors of Our Lady of Emmitsburg, both clergy and laity alike, suggesting that She had claimed that "the Child Jesus would be walking the streets of Emmitsburg" in His physical body, rather that manifesting Himself as He returns in glory in a Spiritual Eucharistic Reign throughout the whole world.  Our Lady of Emmitsburg very emphatically states that, "It will not be His Final Judgment and Coming," and that, "This has been foretold for many centuries and is not a new theology, which many seem to believe."
