Is the Modern Interpretation of the Book of Revelation Flawed? A Consideration of a Different View – Community in Mission

“Cancer- and disease-causing hormones, phalloplasty, permanent wounds masquerading as female genitalia, puberty-blockers for pre-teens, and other grotesques better suited to a museum exhibit on Josef Mengele…these were the treatments available. This was it. This was the best that we, in all our secular modern medical brilliance, had to offer these people.

These people, with their astronomical rates of anxiety, depression, drug abuse, alcohol abuse, and suicide, were being offered demonic distortion of their bodies as a solution, at the hands of top surgeons and doctors making hundreds of thousands of dollars a year.

What a waste of human lives. How could this be?”

“Towards the end of his life, Friar Thomas was known to weep copiously during the celebration of the Holy Sacrifice. It was obvious that, young though he was (not yet 50), the Lord was ready to call him to Himself, to the eternal wedding feast.

While Friar Thomas was offering Mass for the feast of St. Nicholas 745 years ago today, on December 6, 1273, God revealed Himself to the saint in a vision that shattered his writing career and left him, for the remaining three months of his life, longing for the reality that had been disclosed to him. He had drunk so abundantly of the Lord’s sweetness that he could say: “All that I have written seems like straw to me, compared with what I have seen.”
