He will come again

The second coming of Christ

Sr Cathy Jones will explain Catholic Teaching on Christ's Second Coming. Sr Cathy will demonstrate how our belief that He will come again plays a necessary part within the whole of Christian theology and how Christian life is diminished when this central mystery of our faith is neglected. Questions to be covered will include, "why should Christians pray for Christ's return in glory?", "what does the Book of Revelation  really say about the end of time?", "how does Catholic doctrine differ from beliefs about ‘the rapture'?", "what is meant by the final judgment?" and "how much can we  know about the end of time and what should we accept as mystery?"
