Catholic prophecies on the war in which the Muslims nations invade, conquer, and occupy Europe (World War 3), and on the subsequent war (World War 4), which frees Europe from the occupation.
Saint Bridget of Sweden:
“The son of man, the parvenu of the sea [the great Catholic monarch], shall be most invincible in war and shall subdue all Germany. The great house shall almost be pulled down. At last the Eagle will come from the North to the West, and shall, together with her children, be surrounded by the towers of Spain and they will raise Germany up again. The Eagle will also invade Mahometan countries [the Muslim nations] and will carry the admirable sign in the Land of Promise [Israel]. Peace and abundance shall return to the world.”
“This most unhappy war shall end when an emperor of Spanish origin will be elected, who will, in a wonderful manner, be victorious through the sign of the Cross. He shall destroy the Jewish and the Mahometan sects: he will restore the church of Saint Sophia [in Istanbul, Turkey], and all the earth shall enjoy peace and prosperity; and new cities will be erected in many places.”
(Fr. Gerald Culleton, The Prophets and Our Times, p. 153-154.)
The great Catholic monarch does not end the Jewish and Islamic faiths; he only ends division into sects within Judaism, Islam, and Christianity, by cooperation with religious leaders.
Saint Francis de Paul
“He [the great Catholic monarch] shall be a great captain and prince of holy men, who shall be called ‘the holy Cross Bearers of Jesus Christ,’ with whom he shall destroy the Mahometan sect and the rest of the infidels. He shall annihilate all the heresies and tyrannies of the world. He shall reform the Church of God by means of his followers, who shall be the best men upon earth in holiness, in arms, in science, and in every virtue, because such is the will of the Most High. They shall obtain the dominion of the whole world, both temporal and spiritual, and they shall support the Church of God until the end of time.”
(Fr. Gerald Culleton, The Prophets and Our Times, p. 157-158.)
In my interpretation, the reference to “the Mahometan sect” refers only to an extremist Islamic sect that develops during World War 3, not to Islam as a whole. The great Catholic monarch annihilates heretical sects, but he does not oppose devout and faithful followers of Islam, nor of Judaism.
Venerable Bartholomew Holzhauser
“He [the great Catholic monarch] will root out false doctrines and destroy the rule of Muslimism. His dominion will extend from the East to the West. All nations will adore God their Lord according to Catholic teaching. There will be many wise and just men. The people will love justice, and peace will reign over the whole earth….”
(Fr. Culleton, The Prophets and Our Times, p. 171.)
The great Catholic monarch fights in World War 4 to free Europe from the occupation by Muslim extremists.
Brother John of the Cleft Rock
“The White Eagle [the great Catholic monarch], by order of the Archangel Michael, will drive the crescent [the Muslim occupiers] from Europe where none but Christians will remain; he himself will rule from Constantinople [i.e. Istanbul]. An era of peace and prosperity will begin for the world.”
(Fr. Gerald Culleton, The Prophets and Our Times, p. 153.)
Abbot Werdin d’Otrante
“The Great Monarch and the Great Pope will precede Antichrist.”
“The nations will be in wars for four years and a great part of the world will be destroyed. All the sects will vanish. The capital of the world will fall. The Pope will go over the sea carrying the sign of redemption on his forehead, and after the victory of the Pope and the Great Monarch peace will reign on earth.”
“The Pope will cross the sea in a year when the Feast of St. George (April 23rd) falls on Good Friday, and St. Mark’s feast (April 25th) falls on Easter Sunday, and the feast of St. Anthony (June 13th) falls on Pentecost and the feast of St. John the Baptist (June 24th) falls on Corpus Christi.”
(Fr. Gerald Culleton, The Prophets and Our Times, p. 149-150.)
The concurrences of these feasts will take place next in 2038, not before. The war of the great Catholic monarch is World War 4, which lasts about 4 years. The Pope crosses the sea to Europe from the U.S., where the Holy See will be in exile (from the latter part of World War 3 until the end of World War 4). The Pope crosses the sea in 2038, and therefore the war ends in 2037 and starts four years earlier, about 2033 or 2034. Europe is occupied during the 2020′s, and so the war in which the Muslim extremists conquer Europe occurs in the 2010′s.
“The Great Monarch will be in war till he is 40 years of age; a King of the House of Lily, he will assemble great armies and expel tyrants from his empire. He will conquer England and other island empires. Greece he will invade and be made king thereof. Clochis, Cypris, the Turks and barbarians he will subdue and have all men to worship the Crucified One. He will at length lay down his crown in Jerusalem.”
(Fr. Gerald Culleton, The Prophets and Our Times, p. 125.)
The great Catholic monarch is Archduke Ferdinand Zvonimir von Hapsburg, who was born in June of 1997 and is 16 years old as of now. He will turn 40 years of age in 2037; that is when World War 4 ends.
“A time will come when the enemies of Christ [Muslim extremists] will boast: ‘We have subjected the earth and all its inhabitants, and the Christians cannot escape our hands.’ Then a Roman Emperor [the great Catholic monarch] will arise in great fury against them…. Drawing his sword, he will fall upon the foes of Christianity and crush them. Then peace and quiet will reign on earth, and priests will be relieved of all their anxieties.
(Fr. Gerald Culleton, The Prophets and Our Times, p. 110.)
World War 4 occurs because, after World War 3 and an occupation of more than a dozen years, the Muslim extremists think to conquer the whole world, subjugate every nation, and make the whole world worship according to their extremist ideas.
