I know that eschatology (end times beliefs) is a big deal among so many Protestant denominations and I pretty much know what they make of it, but I want to know the same about Catholics. What is the Catholic view on eschatology?
What do Catholics believe about the end times?
HE will return; but we do not know when.
What do Catholics believe about the Rapture,
There is no "rapture" as a separate event. Such was not taught until the 1800s, and never by the Catholic Church.
Although there is believed to be a time of trial preceding HIS return, we are not taught its nature or duration.
the 1000 year reign of Christ,
There is no literal 1000 years. IMS, this is taken to be the period between the writing of Rv. and HIS return.
the Antichrist, False Prophet, the Beasts, the Whore of Babylon, the Mark of the Beast,
Very little has been taught concerning these beings or events.
the Final Judgement, the Ressurection, the New Heaven and New Earth (or consumation)?
**When our LORD returns, HE will judge "the living and the dead". Everybody will be fitted with the pneumatikon soma (spiritual body) and will go into Eternity.
Those who "make it through" Judgement will live in the New Heaven and Earth.**
I'm a Catholic but I never was truly taught what the Church teaches on the End Times.
