                  There have been many prophecies about the Great Monarch from many saints and blesseds; St. Francis De Paul, St. Hildegard, Bl. Anne Catherine Emmerich, Methodius of Olympos, St Thomas Becket, to name only a few. But what do these saints and blesseds say about the Great Monarch? Of course, not every prophecy is the same. Some say he will be a Roman Emperor, extending his territory all the way from England to the Holy Lands. Others say that he will be a knight from the west (specifically coming from St. Thomas Becket). Others say that he will be a French King who will restore the Church and Christ. But they all have one thing in common, and that is that the Great Monarch will be a king, and he will cause a mass conversion to Christianity, and that for as long as he reigns there will be peace and justice. To give an example, here is a prophecy from St. Methodius.

 

                 “A time will come when the enemies of Christ will boast: ‘We have subjected the earth and all its inhabitants, and the Christians cannot escape our hands.’ Then a Roman Emperor will rise in great fury against them, drawing his sword, he will fall upon the foes of Christianity and crush them. Then peace and quiet will reign on earth, and the priests will be relieved of all their anxieties.”

 

                This prophecy goes slightly more into detail. The foes of Christianity will rise up against the Church, and all of the Church’s strong leader’s will be silenced, either through persecution or persuasion. The Christian faithful will despair, thinking that there will be no escape. Then at that moment, and that moment only, the Great Monarch will rise up and free the people of God. He will convert many to Christianity, as other prophecies say, “He will cleanse England, and his army will crush the Islamists.” However, this does not mean that the Great Monarch will go about trying to tell people to convert, and if they refuse he will kill them. That would be no better than before. Rather, I think when the saints say this, they mean that they will kill the evil inside of them, not the person being evil. Everyone should have the chance to convert, even if it takes years. They will cleanse that person, and he will turn towards God. Of course, this is just speculation, but it could hold some truth to it. Ultimately the one in control is not any king, but God. And God is the true Great Monarch, who will save us from every evil and despair, even when we are in the most hopeless situations. For though our enemies may try to refute God, they will only end up refuting themselves, and God will be the victor.
