I need some help with this one.
I read at Catholic.com about the pre, mid, and post-millennium, but it really didn’t say enough about what the Catholic Church teaches. I looked through the Cathecism last night and couldn’t find anything about the second coming.(am I looking in the wrong places???) According to the article Catholics are ammillenial. It also states, that although the Church teaches the rapture, we do not use that term In the 2nd article (attached below), Mr. Wichmann stated "We do not believe in the rapture."
I was trying to find something on line since I was unable to find anything in the Cathecism and I found this article about the “Left Behind” series. Although LaHayes and Jenkins denie they are anti-Catholic, it’s obvious they are extremely anti-Catholic in my opinion.
Could someone please tell me where I can get more information on what we believe? The Church teaches us not to worry about the end because our “end” could come at any time. I believe this and have never concerned myself with this before, but with all these anti-Catholic books (fiction or not) out there I feel I need to know exactly what the Church does teach. Not only that, my brother, who is a fundamentalist, told me that Christ would come back to earth for a thousand years before the end of time??? I have never heard this. It’s not something we do here from priest or from our CCD classes.
Thanks in advance!
