Catechism of the Catholic Church (675)

'Before Christ’s second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers. The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth will unveil the “mystery of iniquity” in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the truth. The supreme religious deception is that of the Antichrist, a pseudo-messianism by which man glorifies himself in place of God and of his Messiah come in the flesh.' ~ Catechism of the Catholic Church (675)

Opus Dei

"Hi, I've just arrived in town and I'd like to join Opus Dei. I've decided I want to bring God into my everyday, ordinary life and thereby sanctify the World. When can I start?!"

OD: "Great, well we usually invite you, but we're interested in helping you. What do you do?"

"Well, actually, I'm unemployed."

OD: "Unemployed? Ah...Er...Well...We've got the number of St Vincent de Paul Trust here..."

"Hang on! That's discrimination! I'm taking this to the Equality and Human Rights Commission! After all, that was Ruth Kelly's baby!"

I believe that as long as God permits, St Josemaria Escriva can hear and see what I'm writing and thinking, but Damian Thompson today asks why he was bugging people on Earth? If you're listening, "St Josemaria Escriva! Help me find a job! Ora pro nobis!"

I prayed a Novena to St Jose Maria Escriva, as I wished to find a job that would allow me to attend Daily Mass. My prayer was answered positively, and I now have the glorious pleasure of being able to go to Mass, every day.
