From Mark Mallett: What If . . . ?

What If…?


What’s around the bend?

 

IN my letter to the Holy Father, I presented to His Holiness the theological foundations for an “era of peace” as opposed to the heresy of millenarianism. However, note again what the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith stated regarding the possibility of a “new era of Christian life”:
The question is still open to free discussion, as the Holy See has not made any definitive pronouncement in this regard. —Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, Il Segno del Soprannauturale, Udine, Italia, n. 30, p. 10, Ott. 1990; Fr. Martino Penasa presented this question of a “millenary reign” to Cardinal Ratzinger
Thus it is remotely possible that the Church, at any point in the future, may also state definitively that an “era of peace” is also contrary to the Faith. Until such a pronouncement is made, if ever, one can also ask, “What if—what if an “era of peace” is not part of the “end times”?
