Antipope Francis, the Apocalypse, the Beast, the Antichrist, and more…

“Referring to the situation of the Church today, the Holy Father says he has the feeling that “from some fissure the smoke of Satan has entered the temple of God.” There is doubt, uncertainty, problems, restlessness, dissatisfaction, confrontation.”
