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)

Snakes in the Grass
It takes time and effort sometimes to find the 'snakes in the grass' and as a follow up to his piece on the 2014 Synod, Nicholas Bellord has written another fine piece for the Guild of Blessed Titus Brandsma, which makes a commendable and recommendable read, together with 'On the Side of the Angels' excellent recent post on the hugely problematic Instrumentum Laboris, for the Guild.
The indomitable Fr Z has picked up Nicholas Bellord's clear-minded, sober analysis as well and I am pleased to say that Nicholas's new post can now be read here.
If only such clear and sober thought, faithful to the Truth of Christ, were more evident among the movers and 'shakers' rattling behind these concerning Synod 14 and now Synod 15 documents.
