It is common to hear traditional Catholic priests claim that we don’t know when the Church crisis will end and how; now, the teaching of the Apocalypse of St. John is the exact opposite: this prophetic book does not only describe the way the crisis will be solved, it gives its approximate length. Many Catholics believe that the Apocalypse is hard to understand, because they don’t know the meaning of its language, which is made of symbols. Therefore, the purpose of the present book is to explain those symbols, in the light of Fr. Kramer’s work, “The Book of Destiny”. Once we have drawn a parallel between this work and some more recent writings that have better understood the crisis described in the Apocalypse, the latter book becomes clear and evident: it mentions the election of a Martyr-Pope some time before the apostasy of the Roman clergy, who has to go into exile following this apostasy, and who is to reappear later, in order to judge the Great Harlot, namely the counterfeit Church of the end times.
In the Apocalypse, heaven symbolizes the Church, the angels symbolize bishops, stars symbolize priests,etc. In chapter XII, all angels are gathered in heaven and fight with each other: it represents an Oecumenical council (Vatican II), during which bishops will be divided between the good and the bad. The “tail”, in Holy Scriptures, alludes to false prophets with their false doctrines, as opposed to the “head”, which represents good prophets and worthy priests. Therefore, when it is written “and his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and cast them to the earth”, it means that the dragon (Satan) deceives the Catholic priests and bishops with false doctrines, and they fall from heaven: they are no longer members of the Church, either because they are in mortal sin, either because they apostatize.
The “woman” depicts the Church, since the Blessed Virgin is the Mother of the Church. Her son is the Pope, who is elected by the Church. He has an iron rod, representing the separation of the good from the wicked in Holy Scriptures. It describes the Martyr Pope of the end times, and through him, the model of a worthy pope. This Martyr Pope “was taken up to God, and to his throne.” The throne is an allusion to chapter IV, where the throne of God symbolizes the Catholic Church hierarchy, especially the papacy (see my book). Thus, this image means that the Martyr Pope will be given back to the Church after the mystical death of his exile, just like Christ who was given back to His Father after His Death on the Cross.
There are two refuges of the woman during each battle of the dragon: the battle in heaven, and the battle on earth. It depicts two exiles of the Pope: the first during the reign of the Great Harlot (the false Church), and the second during the reign of the Antichrist.
The dragon expelled from heaven symbolizes the excommunication of the modernist clergy; and in order to indicate us the identity of he who will excommunicate this clergy, the Apocalypse tells us: “the accuser of our brethren is cast forth, who accused them before our God day and night.” It alludes to Joshuah the high priest who was accused by Satan, when he came back from the Babylonian captivity and restored the Jewish theocracy, just like Pope Paul VI who will come back from the present captivity and who will restore the Catholic theocracy. The latter has been imprisoned in the Vatican until July 12th 1981, which means that he has gone through the captivity of a new Babylon (the false Church), just like Joshuah the high priest who went through the Babylonian captivity. We, as Catholics, are also living in captivity, because the false Church is oppressing us.
The reappearance of the Martyr Pope is compared with the Last Judgment in chapter XIV, because the excommunication he will pronounce will be the last great separation on earth, just as the Last Judgment will be the last separation in heaven.
