British Monarch Can Marry a Roman Catholic: A Sign of the Last Days?

Prince William of Wales and Catherine Middleton


Changes in the UK now allow Roman Catholics to be the monarch for Britain:

Girls equal in British throne succession
The leaders of the 16 Commonwealth countries where the Queen is head of state unanimously approved the changes at a summit in Perth, Australia.
It means a first-born daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge would take precedence over younger brothers.
The ban on the monarch being married to a Roman Catholic was also lifted.

This is interesting because this is the first time in centuries that British monarchs are allowed to marry a Roman Catholic.  I specifically used the term Roman Catholics because the monarchs have tended to be what they call Anglican Catholics.   Just over four years ago, former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair became Roman Catholic (see also Tony Blair a Catholic EU Leader?).  Ultimately, this may turn out to allow the monarch him/herself to be Roman Catholic–we will see–if it does not, then the Vatican will likely be offended in the future.

“Last Days” Warned Here After England Gives “Gods Throne” To Catholics

By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers

A frightening didactic treatise sent to Prime Minister Putin by His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia warns that the time foretold about in the Holy Scriptures commonly called the “Last Days” are now upon the world after England “surrendered” this past week the “Throne of God” to the Roman Catholic Church from which it had “liberated” it from in 1558.

According to this treatise, a “satanic bargain” agreed to between Queen Elizabeth II and Pope Benedict XVI…Patriarch Kirill warns in his treatise that the “deliberate” forgetting of the past in regards to this shocking move would insure an “apocalyptic” end to everything on this Earth.

Now, while I have NOT been able to verify this from other sources (the above source seems to sometimes report on stories that are in Russian and not translated online into English), it is true that the throne of the British monarchy will be given to Christ (who will later give it to King David per Ezekiel 37:24-25).  So, whether or not Patriarch Kirill made that statement about the last days, the reality is that the decision in England was significant.  The Russian and Eastern Orthodox also call themselves ‘Catholic.’

Ultimately, I do believe that a professing Roman Catholic (not necessarily one truly faithful to how that religion is currently practiced) will rule over Britain (though our Lord Jesus Christ will ultimately get that, and other thrones, per Revelation 11:15).

There is an old Catholic prophecy that indicates that the European Great Monarch will taken over the UK and the UK is either divided into thirds or ruled by three, presumably Roman Catholic, leaders:

Mother Shipton (d. 1551) “The time will come when England shall tremble and quake…London shall be destroyed forever after . . . and then York shall be London and the Kingdom governed by three Lords appointed by a Royal Great monarch…who will set England right and drive out heresy (Culleton, R. Gerald.  The Prophets and Our Times. Nihil Obstat: L. Arvin.  Imprimatur: Philip G. Scher, Bishop of Monterey-Fresno, November 15, 1941.  Reprint 1974, TAN Books, Rockford (IL), p. 163).

Interestingly, notice what one Catholic has written about the punishment for America and Britain:

Priest G. Rossi (19th century): But boastful pride and presumption always go before a fall. With her large share of guilt, America cannot avoid her due share of punishment…If the world is not yet entirely converted to Christianity, the blame is not on the head nor in the conscience of the Catholic Church… Ah! wretched Protestantism shall have to answer for the loss of faith… English schism and heresy have squandered their treasures and abused their great temporal power, not only in persecuting-the faith in Great Britain and Ireland, but also in banishing the true religion of Jesus Christ from their vast American possessions…Their long-deserved punishment, however, is approaching from the North! (Rossi, Gaudentius. The Christian Trumpet: Or, Previsions and Predictions about Impending General Calamities, the Universal Triumph of the Church, the Coming of the Anti-Christ, the Last Judgment, and the End of the World; Divided Into Three Parts, 4th edition. Patrick Donahoe, 1875. Original from Oxford University. Digitized Sep 1, 2006, pp. 16, 255).

So, at least one respected Catholic priest published that a northern power will punish Britain, and its descendants, including the U.S.A. and Canada, for their “pride” and Protestantism.

Despite the new allowance of Roman Catholic leaders, Britain still has a reputation of being one of the bastions of Protestantism, and when I was growing up in a Roman Catholic household, I recall being taught about England’s role in becoming Protestant.

Notice how “Protestantism” has been viewed and what is expected to befall the nominally-Protestant English as far as certain Catholics have indicated:

Priest P. Kramer (21st century): Pope St. Pius V teaches in his Catechism, the Roman Catechism — also known as the Catechism of the Council of Trent — that all of the Protestant religions are false religions, they’re inspired by the devil; and therefore their fruits are evil…The Protestant religions, as such, are inspired by the devil, as Pope St. Pius V teaches in his catechism. (Kramer P. The Imminent Chastisement for Not Fulfilling Our Lady’s Request. An edited transcript of a speech given at the Ambassadors of Jesus and Mary Seminar in Glendale, California, September 24, 2004. THE FATIMA CRUSADER Issue 80, Summer 2005, pp. 32-45 viewed 4/15/08 )

Father Laurence Ricci, S.J. (died 1775): … a valiant duke will arise from the ancient German house which was humiliated by the French monarch. This great ruler will restore stolen Church property. Protestantism will cease… This duke will be the most powerful monarch on earth. At a gathering of men noted for piety and wisdom he will, with the aid of the Pope, introduce new rules, and ban the spirit of confusion. Everywhere there will be one fold and one shepherd.” (Connor p.37)

St. Malachy (12th century): … the English in turn must suffer severe chastisement. Ireland, however, will be instrumental in bringing back the English to the unity of Faith.” (Dupont, Yves. Catholic Prophecy: The Coming Chastisement. TAN Books, Rockford (IL), 1973, p.15)

Saint Edward (d. 1066) “The extreme corruption and wickedness of the English nation has provoked the just anger of God. When malice shall have reached the fullness of its measure, God will, in His wrath, send to the English people wicked spirits, who will punish and afflict them with great severity…” (Culleton, p. 137).

Saint Cataldus of Tarentino (c. 500): “The Great Monarch will be in war till he is forty years of age….he will assemble great armies and expel tyrants from his empire. He will conquer England {the Anglo-Saxons, possibly referring to the USA} and other island empires {possibly referring to the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand}” (Connor, Edward. Prophecy for Today. Imprimatur + A.J. Willinger, Bishop of Monterey-Fresno; Reprint: Tan Books and Publishers, Rockford (IL), 1984, p.30).

The Great Monarch is a prophesied leader (consistent with the final King of the North, Beast power in Bible prophecy) that is expected to work with the final pope (who I believe that biblical and Catholic prophecy show is an antipope) and is expected to eliminate the English, as well any who may be Protestant elsewhere.  And that will happen in the last days.

Many events, even this week, are aligning with end time Bible prophecy. The EU and UK will end up opposed to each other and the final European power and the Vatican will be very close.
