[quote=Magicsilence]I know La Salette is a town.
But Our Lady doesnt mean that people in Rome will lose faith. She is of course referring to the clergy, isnt she?
This has got me really confused.
Personally I would doubt that the antichrist is a referecence to the clergy. Also if you are referring to the Apparition of the Virgin Mary at La Salette, then I believe the authenticity of that apparition is in dispute.
The way I see it there is a city called Rome. And there is a Church called the Catholic Church. If a city becomes evil, does it follow that the Church becomes evil?
In the past the so called City of Rome has tried to overthrough the Papacy. So the two are not necessarily one and the same.
After all we are members of the Catholic Church, we are not citizens of Rome.
Could you provide a link to the full passage that you are quoting?
