Pope Francis made reference to the Manchild of Revelation 12 and John under the cross as both representing the saved Church...then he speaks about the rapture of the manchild compared to the light coming thru the Blessed Virgin Mary in Fatima...


“[There] appeared in heaven a woman clothed with the sun”. So the seer of Patmos tells us in the Book of Revelation (12:1), adding that she was about to give birth to a son. Then, in the Gospel, we hear Jesus say to his disciple, “Here is your mother” (Jn 19:27). We have a Mother!

Mary came to remind us that God’s light dwells within us and protects us, for, as we heard in the first reading, “the child [of the woman] was snatched away and taken to God” (Rev 12:5). In Lucia’s account, the three chosen children found themselves surrounded by God’s light as it radiated from Our Lady. She enveloped them in the mantle of Light that God had given her. According to the belief and experience of many pilgrims, if not of all, Fatima is more than anything this mantle of Light that protects us, here as in almost no other place on earth. We need but take refuge under the protection of the Virgin Mary and to ask her, as the Salve Regina teaches: “show unto us… Jesus”.

It is good to know we are included inside the image of the Manchild of Revelation 12 awaiting our own snatching away to heavens...does it mean pope Francis announces a kind of a modern "rapture theory" that includes the apparition of Our Lady in Fatima and the light coming from her?

In anyway, no other pope I know of have ever identified the image Manchild of Revelation to the common faithful, only to Jesus and to his mystical rebirth in the believers. This latest move of pope Francis opens the door wide for interpretations of Catholic eschatology, where does the 1bln member church stand in its understanding of the End times. It is due to have an urgent update of the Catholic position that until now drags legs behind the protestant/evangelicals.

my interpretation below: the Manchild (we the believers) are taken on a spaceship city before the doomsday

"Protection" does not always require physical removal (especially if seen in terms of preservation from temptation), so the Pope's use of the word does not necessarily commit him to any "removal" theory.

Must be a lot of excitement over this fall if the Pope is using it too.

it depends on your interpretation. Here the pope compares the protected ones NOT to the woman fleeing into the desert, but to the Manchild. The first to do so in the Catholic church, as far as I know.

The previous interpretation (Catholic) was that we all should give mystical birth of Jesus - that is the manchild. Seems that mystical interpretation although true in its essence, now steps aside to give room for something more real one.

As we know, the Manchild is raptured, and that puts the start of the war in heaven (or should we say war in space). Only after its victorious end the dragon is cast down to earth and the persecution of the woman starts. It is strange why the dragon doesn't attempt to eat up the woman still pregnant. he just stands by and waits. My suggestion, and I underline it is just suggestion, his intention is not literally to eat up /kill the manchild, rather to seduce him to turn to the dark side...(any analogies with popular films sagas?) Therefore he needs the manchild alive not dead.

Seems the only viable escape from temptation of such great magnitude is to run away, as far as God's heaven, as Revelation 12 tells us. Otherwise, God's plan in the image of manchild risks to fail, as the failure of our great grand parents in the garden. And because God cannot be caught up in surprise, therefore His plan not ours, of the snatching away the manchild.

I am thankful to pope Francis he said that, he clothed that idea with the words of his authority. If you browse my threads especially those of the manchild, I say quite a bit of it. Although I never assumed it were we, because it wouldn't be humble from my point of view. And now, we get it officially from the pope, on the solemn anniversary of the apparitions of Mother of God...What will happen in 5 months with Her miracle of the sun? And with those who have consecrated themselves to her? Just to be martyrs? Actually it would be good for the persons, but not good for the bigger plan.

It seems to me that the key words for understanding his interpretation are "God's light dwells within us... the mantle of light that protects us". His idea appears to be that we are protected "in place" rather than taken away.

If you remove the words Francis Pope and Saved, I may just give you a flag.

So will all of his nonsense cease after this fall comes and goes? Yes?

If I were God, sad to say, the Pope is the first one I would throw into the lake of fire, forever.

for me he is emphasising "Gods light" and canonizing these kids, who were abducted by higher powers (aliens)...

and he is distancing himself from the mary and jesus story, by doing things like this...www.theguardian.com...


this is very interesting.....

No, that one is just a case of distancing himself from a particular set of modern visions.

The "Lady" is Mother Earth and the light radiating from her is the light you see that reveals the world around you.

Christianity makes reference to light all the time and how it is God yet Christians never recognize the light right in front of them. They see the light but do not perceive it.

The Virgin Mary represents Earth, something that never had sex yet spawned life anyways. All this mystery surrounding religion can easily be resolved by relating the stories to aspects of life itself, what we're experiencing right now.

Mother (Earth), Father (Time) and Son (Mind), the product of this Trinity being what we experience right now which is light and life.

People need to wake up to the sham that is religion, it's only a tool used by those in power to close our minds off from the truth. How? By threat of eternal punishment. Love is not made perfect when fear is part of the equation.

Our Lady said who she is, and said she would appear next 13th

The people knew in advance for the coming big miracle, although they didn't know it would be the Dancing Sun Miracle, and gathered some 70,000 by conservative estimations of the local Anti-clerical media, who reported also the sun miracle. That in the time of no cars (except for the mayor...) of dusty and muddy roads, in rural part of Portugal. Not much different from rural Russia if you will.

Not exactly. Next day the SECULAR media announced of the miracle. The secrets the words of Our Lady were not disclosed before 1941 even the known part.

The case is far from closed, even by the standards of those Catholics who assume all the secrets were told by year 2000. Popes have spoken otherwise. The case will be closed when we arrive at the Era of peace, with or without chastisement. And what we have cannot be even close to the Era of peace.

I didn't just write "what msm and churches told the mass from October 14"...if this is your only argument, then please go back and READ what I wrote, and what others wrote.

================================================

Breaking spiritual news: Vatican commission approves the first 7 apparitions in Medjugorje in 1981. Not sure and expressing doubts on the following apparitions 1981-today.

www.lastampa.it...

Medjugorje; the findings of the Ruini report Esteemed by the Pope Francis, the report is positive on the first appearances, much less on the current ones while it proposes to turn the church into a pontifical sanctuary. Doubts from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith that discussed the phenomenon in 2016


That coming days after the landmark Fatima 100th anniversary start. My comment on that is insignificant. Moreover the latest apparitions are put into question. Obviously millions of catholics who took pilgrimage to Medjugorje and who de facto make the core of believers in many parishes, will cheer up now. However a number of issues still remain, that the commission itself preferred not to rule on, such as the 10 secrets of apocalyptic character and the ongoing messages every month. For me, if I have to give any comment, more important is the fruit of Medjugorje, do we benefit spiritually (and not only spiritually) after 36 years of supposed apparitions. I'd favor a situation when Medjugorje transforms into a spiritual center with extraordinary graces. May be that is exactly where the Vatican commission findings lead to, proposing Medjugorje to turn into a shrine controlled directly by the holy see. "By their fruits you will know them" said Jesus.

I am also more interested of HOW it will react to phenomena such as ET-angelic manifestations, let alone rapture-like event, that I discuss above. Will for example Medjugorje, and other apparitions sites, encourage the people to take their place in a rapture-like event, or discourage them? And will Vatican do? The latest major homily of pope Francis in Fatima makes me think, yes the Vatican and the pope himself will stand behind a rescue effort of angelic-ET from planet Earth, if the pope clearly speaks of snatching away (rapture) of Manchild. That topic is long, and deserves many more efforts from people within and outside the denominational frames. Unfortunately, the catholics who should know those texts of apparitions better than anyone else, and supposedly should be living in the grace of AT LEAST Fatima if not other apparitions, refuse to participate in a broad discussion with all options on the table. Instead, they follow prepositioned paradigms from past decades, not taking into account new findings the world has made so far. The Jesuit astronomers indeed speak of the phenomena without getting into details. May be too little too late? Not so, if the latest papal homily becomes the starting point of a process, and not its ending point.

amid the second wave of cyber attacks worldwide,...

on the spiritual side we get a message of Our Lady in Anguera, delivered to Pedro Regis when he is in Italy and Rome, speaking of a Rapture event by Two Angels in the city of Rome! Whatever you might think of other apparitions that they are not yet approved, as Fatima is, it is something to think about when both apparition and pope start talking the same.

(automatic translation from the Brazilian page, the English page is not updated yet)

"...The day will come when Two Angels will pass through this city. The righteous will be taken to safety and the wicked will perish. On this day men will remember the injustices of Nero..."

NO!!!
the son-of-man (Dutch: mensenzoon) not manchild, don't think manchild is the correct translation of the Koine Greek, let me check with my specialist (who is on Holiday for a couple of weeks right now) anyways we protestants believe its (OK lets say manchild) The Rapture, true believers / true Christians taken out of this world at once, before the misery of the 7 Trumpets starts (we call that The Great Tribulation)

Revelation 12:5a (NW):

And she gave birth to a son, a male, ...

NIV, Berean Study Bible:
...a son, a male child...

NLT:
a son

ESV (and a whole bunch of others):
a male child

Berean Literal Bible:
a male son

Pretty much only the KJV has "a man child". Allthough the King James 2000 Bible has "a male child" as well.

This is what the verse is talking about (the child is representing God's Kingdom, it has already been born and signalled the beginning of "the last days" of this wicked system of things of which Satan is "the god of this system of things"):

Some people are unable to see, the pope is one of them.
