Crisis? What crisis?
The beast was slain forever

"I saw that the beast was slain, and the body thereof was destroyed, and given to the fire to be burnt." (From the First Lesson of Matins, Michaelmas - Daniel vii, 11)
"Minds of all, it is true, are affected almost solely by temporal upheavals, disasters, and calamities. But if we examine things critically with Christian eyes, as we should, what are all these compared with the loss of souls?" (Pius XI, Quadragesimo Anno)

    Ah, new Catholic, there is a problem with your title: that vision refers to the End of Time: it is obvious that the Beat has not yet been slain, because the Antichrist has not yet come!

  7. Yes, and no, dear Brother Alexis. The eschatological victory is certain and guaranteed by the victory on the Cross.

    Nevertheless, only the Lamb has been slain so far, the Beast has not been the former is the source of Victory, in the latter the last fruit in this present world, of that Victory...
