The Catechism teaches that “The Church will enter the glory of the kingdom only through this final Passover, when she will** follow her Lord** in his death and Resurrection” (CCC 677).
I feel that the events will be similar to that which occurred before the crucifixion.
Jesus was betrayed by one of his own apostles - the church will be betrayed by a significant percentage (1/12 th maybe) of their own priests and bishops. These priests and bishops will act scandalously and sinfully and thereby handover the entire Catholic church into the hands of her enemies.
Jesus was arrested and his disciples fled - the church will be officially outlawed and Christians will flee
Jesus was flogged and beaten - many Christians will be flogged and beaten.
Jesus was put to death - many Christians, if not all, will be put to death, along with the Pope and the faithful bishops.
Jesus rose on the third day - Christ will come to the judge the living and the dead and the dead in Christ will rise first.
