CHRIST THE KING CALENDAR
NEW EVNAGELIZATION: REMEDY TO ATHEISM AND THE ANTI-CHRIST (CCC.675)
REMARKS: It is important to note that this calendar, JESUS-CENTERED-WEEK-CYCLE spirituality, is not associated with millennialism in its secular or religious forms. Social lives will continue and the leadership of the universe through human beings, it does not promise all heavenly peace on earth. Rather this spirituality is a remedy to what the Catechism of the Church condemns when speaking about millenarianism and the anti-Christ. It references GS 20-21, and in many ways, we have stated that this is an effort towards new evangelization to counter the error that removes human dependence on God, and humankind making themselves the author and finisher and seek all solutions in themselves rather than look upon God; and trusting in their powers and science as the messiah to all human needs. Rather, this spirituality makes Christ, the Messiah, present in this millennium that attempts to strip Christ and God from human society (more than ever). There is peace and light when lives are centered on Christ as the calendar and the books explaining it accentuate. We have documented more about this in our other book that contains the new evangelization aspects of this calendar, signed by a Bishop.
It is also noteworthy that the inspiration from the Holy Spirit in founding CMD started almost at the same time when the Holy Spirit announced through the Sacred Office of St Peter the needs for New Evangelization, and of course, created an office for it (the day of the week in which it was announced is also significant in the calendar of Christ the King). A Catholic blog reporting the creation of this Pontifical Office comments, ” Pope Benedict announced the creation of a New Pontifical Council dedicated to the New Evangelization on Monday evening. Pope Benedict chose the Church of the first great Christian missionary – St. Paul – to announce a new Pontifical Council dedicated to the evangelization of secularized Christian nations. The Pope was celebrating the Vespers of the Vigil of the Solemnity of Sts. Peter and Paul in the Papal Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls. During his homily, he spoke of how his predecessor, Pope John Paul II, had urgently proclaimed a new evangelization, aimed at countries which had long before received the Gospel.
“Pope Benedict said he received this legacy upon his own election to the Chair of Peter, and noted the challenges of the present time are mostly spiritual. He said he wanted to give the new Pontifical Council the task of promoting a renewed evangelization in countries with deep Christian roots which are now experiencing a sense of the “eclipse of God”, and becoming increasingly secularized. “He said this situation presents a challenge in finding the appropriate means in which to revive the perennial truth of the Gospel of Christ.”
The term “New Evangelization” is a favorite of Pope Benedict XVI – as it was of his predecessor, the Venerable John Paul II. There is a desperate need for such a new evangelization in the secularized Western world…This is exactly what was warned of by the fathers of the Second Vatican Council and called the “greatest error of our age, the separation between faith and life.” The result of the rejection of the very existence of objective truth was referred to by Pope Benedict XVI in his first homily as a “Dictatorship of Relativism”. The contemporary culture…has embraced a “new” paganism; which is just the old paganism dressed up in the sophistry of an age that purports to be “enlightened” when it is desperately lost.” (https://www.catholic.org/news/international/europe/story.php?id=37155)
The main mission being accomplished by the Holy Spirit in this calendar is the re-Christianization of the once Christians cultures and the Christianization of the global cultures. It brings persons closer to Jesus Christ as we have seen this realization among many persons who have begun to implement this calendar in their lives. In many ways we have explained that this calendar is not only for Catholics or Christians, but for the evangelization of all and the manifest reign of Christ in every heart and every culture. Thus, the centerpoint of this calendar is the mission of the Holy Spirit through the Church. We believe that is part of God’s plan, especially in our time where belief in Christ is progressively being eroded, “The glorious Messiah’s coming is suspended at every moment of history until his recognition by “all Israel”, for “a hardening has come upon part of Israel” in their “unbelief” toward Jesus. St. Peter says to the Jews of Jerusalem after Pentecost: “Repent therefore, and turn again, that your sins may be blotted out, that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that he may send the Christ appointed for you, Jesus, whom heaven must receive until the time for establishing all that God spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets from of old.” St. Paul echoes him: “For if their rejection means the reconciliation of the world, what will their acceptance mean but life from the dead?” The “full inclusion” of the Jews in the Messiah’s salvation, in the wake of “the full number of the Gentiles”, will enable the People of God to achieve “the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ”, in which “God may be all in all” (CCC 674).

“The excess of Secular Humanism (a grave heresy that CMD is founded to expunge. Kindly read CMD’s Jesus-Week-Cycle: A Spirituality for New Evangelization) has led an aggressive war that portends to disdain the Person of Jesus Christ in schools, politics and in many persons’ hearts (no doubt, the anti-Christ masterminded this war). Thus, the first point is that this devotion remotely originated from the heartbeat of CMD. The Masonic plan to build a new, godless new world order, where Jesus Christ (the Lord and King of the Universe) is removed from human affairs, is completely replaced by the new order CMD labors to establish; this new order is the manifest reign of Jesus Christ over humanity, with the heartbeat to christify the whole world to Him crucified for the whole world. (Devotion to Christ the King)
“Jesus week Cycle spirituality is both a way of life and an apostolate to make Jesus the center of all our lives and everything, and a new evangelization tool that restores the glory of Creation. There- fore, the span of this spirituality is seven days within which creation unfolded. I mentioned severally that one major challenge to the Kingship of Jesus Christ is secularism; secularist ideology is at the root of atheistic Evolutionism. St. Maximillian Kolbe teaches that the defeat of secular evolutionism will come through a sound teaching of Creationism. He teaches also that the Dogma of Immaculate Conception is a key to understanding Creationism. This is the reason why we encourage a special devotion to the Dogma of Immaculate Conception”
“…The early missionary evangelization that emphasized conversion to Christ has to be necessarily elevated to a new evangelization. Christ does not merely desire our conversion but communion and His indwelling in our lives. Jesus-Week-Cycle leads us to this height of Christian discipleship that Christ longs for in us…”
“The one-thousand-year reign of Christ should not be misconstrued with the heresy of millennialism. In these recent years, many persons are predicting the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, and many are concerned with the End-time prophecies. This manifest reign of Christ through the Jesus-week-cycle is not the end of social life; it is not going to be the physical presence of Jesus Christ, which will happen at the end of the world when He comes to judge the living and the dead; Christ will be present in the world through all human beings who live through Him and in Him. Just as many did not recognize and comprehend Jesus when He took flesh 2000 years ago, they will also not recognize the way He is coming in this period of the New Pentecost. The new era of Christ manifest reign promoted in Jesus-week-cycle does not mean the end of the current world; Christ is not coming to reign seated on the kingly palace built in this universe. His reign will be spiritual, and He will manifest His presence through us, as we become His mobile shrines; His special reign among us will be global. He will reign through His Word, and He is the Word of God. His reign will be marked by Light that banishes darkness of satan and sin…”
“In the Millennium reign of Christ the King, the desire to misuse personal will rather than serve Divine Will will always be in this world. Our victory should not only be victory over satan who would soon be bound in the abyss, we should submit our will to Christ the King to gain victory over the flesh and the world. Human pride can lead one to think that he or she can live a happy life without God; this undercurrent desire of the wounded freewill to choose or reject Christ the King will always be there (I Jn.2:16). It is only in Heaven, eternity that the wounds inflicted on the human will when Adam and Eve (the parents of our physical nature) disobeyed God will be completely removed. In Heaven we shall live with a glorified body and uncorrupted and undivided will, “Then comes the end, when He delivers the kingdom to God the Father after destroying every rule and every authority and power. For He must reign until he has put all His enemies under His feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death. For “God has put all things in subjection under His feet… For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality” (I Cor.15: 23-54).
Citation from CMD’s Published Book, “Christ the King Millennium-Era Prayers…
This calendar reclaims entire days and all creatures to God: “The Lord revealed that He reclaimed the seasons of purification and regeneration around spring (Easter) by purifying, dying, and rising in the seasons when pagans previously celebrated gods of purification and regeneration/fertility (in the spring.) He chose to be born in the winter (Christmas) to overturn the ignorance who celebrated the birth of the sun god around that time. God’s completion of creation in seven days is unique to the Holy Trinity and is the only perpetual calendar. Christ the King cycle prayers and devotions reflect (and reclaim) the divinity of the seven days of creation.
In Jesus Christ the King, He did not just redeem fallen creation, He elevated it therefore becoming the new creation. In this ‘Christ-centered’ universe (signified in this calendar) the old and new creation meet and form one unified continuum of the Triune God. For this reason, the Mysteries of Christ have become the center of each day created by God which create the seven-day millennium calendar. The era of universal conversion of all persons to Jesus Christ and consecration of all things to Jesus Christ the King is here. Christ the King prayer calendar reclaims all creation to Jesus Christ. (Kindly note that we commemorate these mysteries spiritually in the weekly cycle, just as the Church observes every Sunday spiritually as the Easter Day of Resurrection, whereas the Easter Day is celebrated with full solemnity on the particular day designated at the calendar of the liturgical year. Also, in the arrangement of this prayer book all creation join in praising Christ the King, and fittingly we have this implied in the breviary, “Teach us the meaning and value of creation – So that we may join its voice to ours as we sing Your praise: Refrain: Instruct us, Lord, in the ways of Your kingdom (Intercession, second day in the second week of Lent)
Citation from CMD’s Unpublished Book, JESUS-WEEK-CYCLE: A Third Millennium Spirituality for New Evangelization…
“CMD’s mission towards the Christification and re-Christification of the universe is largely at the base of Jesus-week-cycle spirituality. Through the Jesus-week-cycle CMD will lead a life and mission that puts Christ at the base and center of the universe. This is an apostolate calling humanity back to the Heart of Christ; it’s also a movement to bring the expansion of the Kingdom of God on earth. It is a way of bringing the entire cosmos to Christ and expanding the victory of Christ. Jesus-week-cycle is an edifice built on Christ; this edifice is not an architectural building, but a life built and centered on Christ. This is the desire of God that we expand His Kingdom into world; God has revealed a way to realize His Kingdom on earth, “fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith” Hebrews 12:2 and Jesus is that way”
Please permit me also to cite few articles from GS and the focus of this calendar in addressing this millennium’s need for new evangelization,
- Modern atheism often takes on a systematic expression which, in addition to other causes, stretches the desires for human independence to such a point that it poses difficulties against any kind of dependence on God. Those who profess atheism of this sort maintain that it gives man freedom to be an end unto himself, the sole artisan and creator of his own history. They claim that this freedom cannot be reconciled with the affirmation of a Lord Who is author and purpose of all things, or at least that this freedom makes such an affirmation altogether superfluous. Favoring this doctrine can be the sense of power which modern technical progress generates in man.
Not to be overlooked among the forms of modern atheism is that which anticipates the liberation of man especially through his economic and social emancipation. This form argues that by its nature religion thwarts this liberation by arousing man’s hope for a deceptive future life, thereby diverting him from the constructing of the earthly city. Consequently when the proponents of this doctrine gain governmental power they vigorously fight against religion, and promote atheism by using, especially in the education of youth, those means of pressure which public power has at its disposal.
- In her loyal devotion to God and men, the Church has already repudiated(16) and cannot cease repudiating, sorrowfully but as firmly as possible, those poisonous doctrines and actions which contradict reason and the common experience of humanity, and dethrone man from his native excellence. Still, she strives to detect in the atheistic mind the hidden causes for the denial of God; conscious of how weighty are the questions which atheism raises, and motivated by love for all men, she believes these questions ought to be examined seriously and more profoundly.
The Church holds that the recognition of God is in no way hostile to man’s dignity, since this dignity is rooted and perfected in God. For man was made an intelligent and free member of society by God Who created him, but even more important, he is called as a son to commune with God and share in His happiness. She further teaches that a hope related to the end of time does not diminish the importance of intervening duties but rather undergirds the acquittal of them with fresh incentives. By contrast, when a divine instruction and the hope of life eternal are wanting, man’s dignity is most grievously lacerated, as current events often attest; riddles of life and death, of guilt and of grief go unsolved with the frequent result that men succumb to despair.
Meanwhile every man remains to himself an unsolved puzzle, however obscurely he may perceive it. For on certain occasions no one can entirely escape the kind of self-questioning mentioned earlier, especially when life’s major events take place. To this questioning only God fully and most certainly provides an answer as He summons man to higher knowledge and humbler probing.
The remedy which must be applied to atheism, however, is to be sought in a proper presentation of the Church’s teaching as well as in the integral life of the Church and her members. For it is the function of the Church, led by the Holy Spirit Who renews and purifies her ceaselessly,(17) to make God the Father and His Incarnate Son present and in a sense visible… THIS THE SOLE AIM OF CHRIST THE KING CALENDAR. ““Before Christ’s second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers. The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth will unveil the “mystery of iniquity” in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the truth. the supreme religious deception is that of the Antichrist, a pseudo-messianism by which man glorifies himself in place of God and of his Messiah come in the flesh” (CCC 675). The malicious activity of the anti-Christ is already at work but will increase and fully manifest. However, this calendar restores and makes formidable what the antichrist purports to destroy, and manifests Christ the king greater as never has been lived in the universe. It brings Christ at the center of daily life in much more proportion than the attempt to strip off from the entire schedule of secular era. The Christ the King Calendar Reset is not just changing the names of the days, apart from Christening all forms of universal paganism, it also changes one’s consciousness of the day. In Him we live and move, and His Mysteries have become the personification of the days (replacing the pagan deities), “In all of His life Jesus presents Himself as our model. He is “the perfect man” … Christ enables us to live in Him all that He Himself lived, and He lives it in us. By His Incarnation, He, the Son of God, has in a certain way united Himself with each man. We are called only to become one with Him, for He enables us as the members of His Body to share in what He lived for us in His flesh as our model: We must continue to accomplish in ourselves the stages of Jesus’ life and His mysteries and often to beg Him to perfect and realize them in us and in His whole Church… This is His plan for fulfilling His mysteries in us (Catechism of the Catholic Church, n. 520-521” )
This result is achieved chiefly by the witness of a living and mature faith, namely, one trained to see difficulties clearly and to master them. Many martyrs have given luminous witness to this faith and continue to do so. This faith needs to prove its fruitfulness by penetrating the believer’s entire life, including its worldly dimensions, and by activating him toward justice and love, especially regarding the needy. What does the most reveal God’s presence, however, is the brotherly charity of the faithful who are united in spirit as they work together for the faith of the Gospel and who prove themselves a sign of unity. THE CALENDAR TALKS ABOUT UNITY OF ALL IN CHRIST
While rejecting atheism, root and branch (scientific or political/ economic liberation, especially referred to in CCC, nor the end of the world in some religious sects), the Church sincerely professes that all men, believers and unbelievers alike, ought to work for the rightful betterment of this world in which all alike live; such an ideal cannot be realized, however, apart from sincere and prudent dialogue. Hence the Church protests against the distinction which some state authorities make between believers and unbelievers, with prejudice to the fundamental rights of the human person. The Church calls for the active liberty of believers to build up in this world God’s temple too. She courteously invites atheists to examine the Gospel of Christ with an open mind. THE CALENDAR BRINGS A SOLUTION TO THE FALSE CHASM SACRED AND SECULAR
Above all the Church knows that her message is in harmony with the most secret desires of the human heart when she champions the dignity of the human vocation, restoring hope to those who have already despaired of anything higher than their present lot. Far from diminishing man, her message brings to his development light, life and freedom. Apart from this message nothing will avail to fill up the heart of man: “Thou hast made us for Thyself,” O Lord, “and our hearts are restless till they rest in Thee.” THE CALENDAR BRINGS ALL TO GOD THROUGH JESUS CHRIST THE KING, NOT ONLY CATHOLICS, OR CHRISTIANS (please see The Great Calendar Reset for biblical points expatiated in this current writeup)
- The truth is that only in the mystery of the incarnate Word does the mystery of man take on light. For Adam, the first man, was a figure of Him Who was to come, namely Christ the Lord. Christ, the final Adam, by the revelation of the mystery of the Father and His love, fully reveals man to man himself and makes his supreme calling clear. It is not surprising, then, that in Him all the aforementioned truths find their root and attain their crown. THE CALENDAR PRESENTS WHY CHRIST IS THE ONLY TRUE SOURCE OF UNITY AND LIGHT FOR THE UNIVERSE
He Who is “the image of the invisible God” (Col. 1:15), is Himself the perfect man. To the sons of Adam He restores the divine likeness which had been disfigured from the first sin onward. Since human nature as He assumed it was not annulled, by that very fact it has been raised up to a divine dignity in our respect too. For by His incarnation the Son of God has united Himself in some fashion with every man. He worked with human hands, He thought with a human mind, acted by human choice and loved with a human heart. Born of the Virgin Mary, He has truly been made one of us, like us in all things except sin.
As an innocent lamb He merited for us life by the free shedding of His own blood. In Him God reconciled us(25) to Himself and among ourselves; from bondage to the devil and sin He delivered us, so that each one of us can say with the Apostle: The Son of God “loved me and gave Himself up for me” (Gal. 2:20). By suffering for us He not only provided us with an example for our imitation,(26) He blazed a trail, and if we follow it, life and death are made holy and take on a new meaning. RECONCILING ALL CREATION IN CHRIST IS THE CENTER OF THE CALENDAR
The Christian man, conformed to the likeness of that Son Who is the firstborn of many brothers,(27) received “the first-fruits of the Spirit” (Rom. 8:23) by which he becomes capable of discharging the new law of love.(28) Through this Spirit, who is “the pledge of our inheritance” (Eph. 1:14), the whole man is renewed from within, even to the achievement of “the redemption of the body” (Rom. 8:23): “If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the death dwells in you, then he who raised Jesus Christ from the dead will also bring to life your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who dwells in you” (Rom. 8:11).(29) Pressing upon the Christian to be sure, are the need and the duty to battle against evil through manifold tribulations and even to suffer death. But, linked with the paschal mystery and patterned on the dying Christ, he will hasten forward to resurrection in the strength which comes from hope.(30)
All this holds true not only for Christians, but for all men of good will in whose hearts grace works in an unseen way.(31) For, since Christ died for all men,(32) and since the ultimate vocation of man is in fact one, and divine, we ought to believe that the Holy Spirit in a manner known only to God offers to every man the possibility of being associated with this paschal mystery. Such is the mystery of man, and it is a great one, as seen by believers in the light of Christian revelation. Through Christ and in Christ, the riddles of sorrow and death grow meaningful. Apart from His Gospel, they overwhelm us. Christ has risen, destroying death by His death; He has lavished life upon us(33) so that, as sons in the Son, we can cry out in the Spirit; Abba, Father(34) THE CALENDAR MENTIONS OF ALL NOT ONLY CATHOLICS OR CHRISTIANS
FEW MORE CITATIONS
Church Teachings on the Millennium Reign, the Sabbath of the Lord Millennium, and the Renewal by the Holy Spirit
The Church Fathers most affirmatively did not “diverge widely” on their view of the proper interpretation of the Book of Revelation. Almost all of them believed firmly that it promised “the times of the kingdom” on earth, within history, during its final “millennium” – before Christ’s final coming in the flesh. It is precisely through this interim “coming of the Kingdom” that the Church will be sanctified and prepared so that Our Lord Jesus “might present to himself the church in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish” (Eph 5:27). Another term for this Era of Peace is a “middle coming” of Christ in Spirit:
Whereas people had previously spoken only of a twofold coming of Christ—once in Bethlehem and again at the end of time—Saint Bernard of Clairvaux spoke of an adventus medius, an intermediate coming, thanks to which he periodically renews His intervention in history. I believe that Bernard’s distinction strikes just the right note… —POPE BENEDICT XVI, Light of the World, p.182-183, A Conversation With Peter Seewald
This is what St. Bernard said:
Because this [middle] coming lies between the other two, it is like a road on which we travel from the first coming to the last. In the first, Christ was our redemption; in the last, he will appear as our life; in this middle coming, he is our rest and consolation.…. In his first coming Our Lord came in our flesh and in our weakness; in this middle coming he comes in spirit and power; in the final coming he will be seen in glory and majesty… —St. Bernard, Liturgy of the Hours, Vol I, p. 169
This teaching of the Church Fathers was reaffirmed by the Magisterium in a theological commission in 1952 that concluded that it is not contrary to the Catholic Faith to maintain…
…a hope in some mighty triumph of Christ here on earth before the final consummation of all things. Such an occurrence is not excluded, is not impossible, it is not all certain that there will not be a prolonged period of triumphant Christianity before the end… If before that final end there is to be a period, more or less prolonged, of triumphant sanctity, such a result will be brought about not by the apparition of the person of Christ in Majesty but by the operation of those powers of sanctification which are now at work, the Holy Ghost and the Sacraments of the Church. —The Teaching of the Catholic Church: A Summary of Catholic Doctrine [London: Burns Oates & Washbourne, 1952] p. 1140
Indeed, the Early Church Fathers frequently spoke of a coming “sabbath rest” for the Church. In fact, they claimed that this period of rest for the Church, the “times of the kingdom”, as Irenaeus called them, were precisely the “thousand years” spoken of by St. John after the death of the Antichrist or “beast”.
Scripture says: ‘And God rested upon the seventh day from all His works’… And in six days created things were completed; it is evident, therefore, that they will come to an end at the sixth thousand year [after Adam]… But when The Antichrist shall have devastated all things in this world, he will reign for three years and six months, and sit in the temple at Jerusalem; and then the Lord will come from Heaven in the clouds… sending this man and those who follow him into the lake of fire; but bringing in for the righteous the times of the kingdom, that is, the rest, the hallowed seventh day… These are to take place in the times of the kingdom, that is, upon the seventh day… the true Sabbath of the righteous… Those who saw John, the Lord’s disciple, [tell us] that they heard from him how the Lord taught and spoke about these times… —St. Irenaeus of Lyons, Church Father (140–202 A.D.); Adversus Haereses, Irenaeus of Lyons, V.33.3.4, The Fathers of the Church, CIMA Publishing Co.; (St. Irenaeus was a student of St. Polycarp, who knew and learned from the Apostle John and was later consecrated bishop of Smyrna by John.)
Irenaeus is referring to Church Father Papias, who was a disciple of St. John according to the Vatican’s own documentation:
Papias by name, of Herapolis, a disciple dear to John… copied the Gospel faithfully under John’s dictation. —Codex Vaticanus Alexandrinus, Nr. 14 Bibl. Lat. Opp. I., Romae, 1747, p.344
And St. Justin Martyr wrote:
A man among us named John, one of Christ’s Apostles, received and foretold that the followers of Christ would dwell in Jerusalem for a thousand years, and that afterwards the universal and, in short, everlasting resurrection and judgment would take place…. Now… we understand that a period of one thousand years is indicated in symbolic language. —St. Justin Martyr, Dialogue with Trypho, Ch. 81, The Fathers of the Church, Christian Heritage
“And 6,000 years must needs be accomplished, in order that the Sabbath may come, the rest, the holy day “on which God rested from all His works.” For the Sabbath is the type and emblem of the future kingdom of the saints, when they “shall reign with Christ,” when He comes from heaven, as John says in his Apocalypse: for “a day with the Lord is as a thousand years.” Since then, in six days God made all things, it follows that 6, 000 years must be fulfilled. (Hippolytus of Rome. On the HexaËmeron, Or Six Days’ Work. From Fragments from Commentaries on Various Books of Scripture).
“The Church never took a formal position on the issue (Sabbath Millennium) at any of the ecumenical councils, and thus both pro and con positions remained consistent with orthodoxy” (Commentary of some exegetes, on this topic). Thus, Justin Martyr, says, “I admitted to you formerly, that I and many others are of this opinion, and [believe] that such will take place, as you assuredly are aware; but, on the other hand, I signified to you that many who belong to the pure and pious faith, and are true Christians, think otherwise” (Dialogue with Trypho the Jew, Chapter 110.)
This “seventh day” is not eternity but this interim “coming of the Kingdom” before the eternal “eighth day”:
…when His Son will come and destroy the time of the lawless one and judge the godless and change the sun and the moon and the stars—then He shall indeed rest on the seventh day… after giving rest to all things, I will make the beginning of the eighth day, that is, the beginning of another world. —Letter of Barnabas (70-79 A.D.), written by a second century Apostolic Father
Indeed, as the Scriptures indicate, after this “thousand years”, which the Church Fathers also called “the Day of the Lord”, there is one last final revolt (Rev 20:7-10) — Gog and Magog, who are a type of the Beast and False Prophet who assaulted the Church before the Era of Peace.
We shall indeed be able to interpret the words, “The priest of God and of Christ shall reign with Him a thousand years; and when the thousand years shall be finished, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison;” for thus they signify that the reign of the saints and the bondage of the devil shall cease simultaneously… so in the end they shall go out who do not belong to Christ, but to that last Antichrist… —St. Augustine, The Anti-Nicene Fathers, City of God, Book XX, Chap. 13, 19
The kingdom will be fulfilled, then, not by a historic triumph of the Church through a progressive ascendancy, but only by God’s victory over the final unleashing of evil, which will cause his Bride to come down from heaven. God’s triumph over the revolt of evil will take the form of the Last Judgment after the final cosmic upheaval of this passing world. —Catechism of the Catholic Church, n. 677
Renewal which happens in the New Era
Your divine commandments are broken, your Gospel is thrown aside, torrents of iniquity flood the whole earth carrying away even your servants… Will everything come to the same end as Sodom and Gomorrah? Will you never break your silence? Will you tolerate all this forever? Is it not true that your will must be done on earth as it is in heaven? Is it not true that your kingdom must come? Did you not give to some souls, dear to you, a vision of the future renewal of the Church? —St. Louis de Montfort, Prayer for Missionaries, n. 5; ewtn.com
[John Paul II] does indeed cherish a great expectation that the millennium of divisions will be followed by a millennium of unifications… that all the catastrophes of our century, all its tears, as the Pope says, will be caught up at the end and turned into a new beginning. —Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (POPE BENEDICT XVI), Salt of the Earth, An Interview With Peter Seewald, p. 237
After purification through trial and suffering, the dawn of a new era is about to break. —POPE ST. JOHN PAUL II, General Audience, September 10, 2003
God loves all men and women on earth and gives them the hope of a new era, an era of peace… The Great Jubilee is inseparably linked to this message of love and reconciliation, a message which gives voice to the truest aspirations of humanity today. —POPE JOHN PAUL II, Message of Pope John Paul II for the Celebration of the World Day of Peace, January 1, 2000
But even this night in the world shows clear signs of a dawn that will come, of a new day receiving the kiss of a new and more resplendent sun… A new resurrection of Jesus is necessary: a true resurrection, which admits no more lordship of death… In individuals, Christ must destroy the night of mortal sin with the dawn of grace regained. In families, the night of indifference and coolness must give way to the sun of love. In factories, in cities, in nations, in lands of misunderstanding and hatred the night must grow bright as the day, nox sicut dies illuminabitur, and strife will cease and there will be peace. —POPE PIUX XII, Urbi et Orbi address,March 2nd, 1957; vatican.va
“And they shall hear my voice, and there shall be one fold and one shepherd.” May God… shortly bring to fulfillment His prophecy for transforming this consoling vision of the future into a present reality… It is God’s task to bring about this happy hour and to make it known to all… When it does arrive, it will turn out to be a solemn hour, one big with consequences not only for the restoration of the Kingdom of Christ, but for the pacification of… the world. We pray most fervently and ask others likewise to pray for this much-desired pacification of society. —POPE PIUS XI, Ubi Arcani dei Consilioi “On the Peace of Christ in his Kingdom”, December 23, 1922
We implore [Mary’s] maternal intercession that the Church may become a home for many peoples, a mother for all peoples, and that the way may be opened to the birth of a new world. It is the RISEN CHRIST Who tells us, with a power that fills us with confidence and unshakeable hope: “Behold, I make all things new” (Rev 21:5). With Mary we advance confidently towards the fulfillment of this promise… —POPE FRANCIS, Evangelii Gaudium, n. 288). “Humanity is in need of justice, of peace, love, and will have it only by returning with their whole heart to God, who is the source. —POPE FRANCIS, at the Sunday Angelus, Rome, February 22nd, 2015; Zenit.org)

In Him we live and move, and His Mysteries have become the personification of the days (replacing the pagan deities), “In all of His life Jesus presents Himself as our model.

We are called only to become one with Him, for He enables us as the members of His Body to share in what He lived for us in His flesh as our model: We must continue to accomplish in ourselves the stages of Jesus’ life and His mysteries and often to beg Him to perfect and realize them in us and in His whole Church… This is His plan for fulfilling His mysteries in us (Catechism of the Catholic Church, n. 520-521”)
