“The Resurrection of the Church”

After seeing in visions the rise of a “beast” or Antichrist, who would come toward the end of the world, the prophet is then told:
Go your way, Daniel, for the words are shut up and sealed until the time of the end. Many shall purify themselves, and make themselves white, and be refined… (Daniel 12:9-10)
Over the past century, the Holy Spirit has been revealing to the Church the fullness of the plan of Redemption through Our Lady, several mystics, and a recovery of the authentic meaning of the teachings of the Early Church Fathers on the Book of Revelation. Indeed, the Apocalypse is a direct echo of Daniel’s visions, and therefore, the “unsealing” of its contents presupposes a fuller understanding of its meaning in keeping with the “Public Revelation” of the Church—Sacred Tradition.
…even if [Public] Revelation is already complete, it has not been made completely explicit; it remains for Christian faith gradually to grasp its full significance over the course of the centuries.“ —Catechism of the Catholic Church, n. 66
As a sidenote, in the locutions to the late Fr. Stefano Gobbi whose writings bear two Imprimaturs, Our Lady allegedly confirms that the “Book” of Revelation has now been unsealed:
Mine is an apocalyptic message, because you are in the heart of that which has been announced to you in the last and so very important book of Sacred Scripture. I entrust to the angels of light of my Immaculate Heart the task of bringing you to an understanding of these events, now that I have opened the sealed Book for you. —To the Priests, Our Lady’s Beloved Sons, n. 520, i,j.
THE SEVENTH DAY
The prophet Hosea writes:
He will revive us after two days; on the third day he will raise us up, to live in his presence. (Hosea 6:2)
Again, recall the words of Pope Benedict XVI to journalists on his flight to Portugal in 2010, that there is “the need for a passion of the Church.” He warned that many of us have fallen asleep at this hour, much like the Apostles in Gethsemane:
…‘the sleepiness’ is ours, of those of us who do not want to see the full force of evil and do not want to enter into his Passion.” —POPE BENEDICT XVI, Catholic News Agency, Vatican City, Apr 20, 2011, General Audience
…[the Church] will follow her Lord in his death and Resurrection. —Catechism of the Catholic Church, 677
That being the case, the Church will also follow her Lord for “two days” in the tomb, and rise on the “third day.” Let me explain this through the teachings of the Early Church Fathers…”
“Behold, the Day of the Lord shall be a thousand years. —Letter of Barnabas, The Fathers of the Church, Ch. 15
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: .,..”
