In a series of messages given by the Blessed Virgin Mary as interior locutions to Fr. Stefano Gobbi (seen in photo above with St. Pope John Paul II), Our Lady has unequivocally said that the Second Coming of Jesus will happen very soon, in fact in the present generation. The messages, which carry the imprimatur from several cardinals and bishops, are compiled in the book “To the Priests: Our Lady’s Beloved Sons” . The messages have spawned a worldwide movement – the Marian Movement of Priests and Laity – which have hundreds of priests and bishops as members, as well as millions of lay faithful. Below is an excerpt of a message on the End Times given by Our Lady on December 31, 1992:
I have announced to you many times that the end of the times and the coming of Jesus in glory is very near. Now, I want to help you understand the signs described in the Holy Scriptures, which indicate that His glorious return is now close.
These signs are clearly indicated in the Gospels, in the letters of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, and they are becoming a reality during these years.
The first sign is the spread of errors, which lead to the loss of faith and to apostasy.
These errors are being propagated by false teachers, by renowned theologians who are no longer teaching the truths of the Gospel, but pernicious heresies based on errors and on human reasoning. It is because of the teaching of these errors that the true faith is being lost and the great apostasy is spreading everywhere.
“See that no one deceives you. For many will attempt to deceive many people. False prophets will come and will deceive very many.” (Mt 24:4-5)
“The day of the Lord will not come unless the great apostasy comes first.” (2 Thes. 2,3)
