04_The Era of Peace




Bible Study Evangelista Show show

Summary: "In all of Christ's disciples the Spirit arouses the desire to be peacefully united, in the manner determined by Christ, as one flock under one shepherd. The journey of the Church, especially in our own time, is marked by the sign of ecumenism: Christians are seeking ways to restore that unity which Christ implored from the Father for his disciples on the day before his Passion: 'That they may all be one; even as you, Father, are in me, and I in you that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me' (Jn. 17:21). The unity of Christ's disciples, therefore, is a great sign given in order to kindle faith in the world while their division constitutes a scandal" (Redemptoris Mater, St. John Paul II).<br> <br> Public revelation in Christ (Apostolic Tradition and Scripture) ALWAYS takes primary place in discerning end times events and prophecies. Not Marian apparitions, contemporary prophets, or fascinating modern predictions. <br> <br> <br> <br> Thank you to my newest Friends of the Show, Diane S; Davida B; Mary Jo F; Jill A; and Jacklyn C, for loving and lifting me!

This designation means little has been defined by the Magisterium concerning the end times, so the subject is open for speculation and development by Catholics seeking truth via Sacred Tradition (history) and Sacred Scripture. I attempt throughout the series to make clear what is public revelation and therefore part of the Deposit of Faith, and what is approved private revelation and not a matter of adherence.<br> Dr. Scott Hahn most recently put forth the liturgical and historical interpretation of the B...
