DOES CATHOLIC PROPHECY REVEAL THAT ISLAM WILL CONVERT TO CATHOLICISM?
"He shall reform the Church of God." (St. Francis of Paola, 15th Century)
"He shall restore the apostolic discipline." (St. John of Capistrano 15th Century)
"He will crush the foes of Christianity." (St. Methodius, 4th Century)
"He will crush the enemies of the Pope."(D. Pareus, 17th Century)
"He will go through all Europe with a powerful army, uproot every Republic, and exterminate all rebels." (Gekner, 17th Century)
"He will set England aright and drive out heresy ... He will appoint three Lords to rule the Kingdom of England." (Mother Shipton, 16th Century)
What is most important to our times, is that it is foretold that the great Monarch (also sometimes referred to as the "Eagle") will crush Islam and in the end will bring about Islam's conversion to the Catholic Church.
"The Great Monarch ... will conquer the (Middle) East." (Pareus, 17th Century)
"Cyprus, the Turks and Barbarians he will subdue." (Cataldus, 5th Century)
"The Eagle will also invade the Mohammedan countries." (St. Bridget, 14th Century)
"He shall destroy the Jewish and Mohammedan sects." (St. Bridget)
"He shall destroy the Mohammedan sect and the rest of the infidels." (St. Francis of Paola, 15th Century)
"The Empire of the Mohammedans will be broken up (by him)." (Ven. Holzhauser, 17th Century)
"He shall subdue to his dominion the Mohammedan Empire" (Gekner, 17th Century)
"He shall reign over the House of Agar, and shall possess Jerusalem." (Isidore of Seville, 7th Century)
"He shall wrestle the Kingdom of the Christians from Ishmael, and conquer it from the Saracens. None of the Saracens shall be able to prevail." (Liber Mirabilis, 16th Century)
What is also very interesting is that it is foretold that there will come a time when Russia will arm Islam. According to Yves Dupont, Nostradamas predicts "The Mohammedans will take advantage of the complete anarchy prevailing in Western Europe and proclaim a 'Holy War'...They will be armed by...Russia who will endeavor not to become involved directly, at least not in the beginning."
Many Catholic prophecies and indeed the Book of Revelations refer to the "Beast of the Earth" and the "Beast of the Sea" (Dragon and the Hydra). It is commonly understood that references to the "Beast of the Earth" and the "Beast of the Sea prior to the appearance of the anti-Christ, are to Russia and Islam respectively.
"And he stood upon the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten diadems, and upon his heads names of blasphemy. And the beast, which I saw, was like to a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion. And the dragon gave him his own strength, and great power." Revelations 13:1-2.
As many of you are aware, Russia is currently openly and actively facilitating, assisting and defending Iran against the West in its procurement of nuclear capabilities and is involved in the construction of a nuclear reactor in Iran.
