Noted Catholic Orator Bishop Fulton Sheen Predicted Already in the 1950s
A Counterfeit Catholic Church “Emptied of Its Divine Content”

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Bishop Fulton Sheen, whose 1950’s television program “Life Is Worth Living” surpassed in audience all of the network programs in his time-slot, raged against the evils of the time in the Church and society, which are the same evils that we face today. Sheen, along with Fr. Charles Coughlin, the noted radio priest of the 1930s, and Fr. Denis Fahey, prolific popular writer in the 1930s and 1940s, vehemently prophesied and warned against atheistic Communism and counterfeit Catholicism. He was certainly correct in these prophecies and warnings, as both evils have grown far greater in the succeeding half century or so.

One of Sheen’s most interesting prophecies was that “there will be an Anti-Christ one day who seeks to take over the world, and there will be his prophet who is a religious leader who seeks to deceive people with a fake system of spirituality.” The first part of that prophecy seems to relate to the secular regime of atheistic Communism, and the second part could well refer to the Newpopes of the heretical Newchurch of the New Order.

In the secular realm, when the Soviet Union fell in 1992, it numbered about 300,000,000 souls in its Communist regime, approximately the current population of the United States. Today, the atheistic Communist dictatorship of China rules 1,500,000,000 souls, five times that number.

As to his prophesy of a counterfeit Catholicism, Sheen described it as

a new religion without a Cross, a liturgy without a world to come, a religion to destroy a religion, or a politics which is a religion. The Antichrist will not believe in God, but he will be religious. It will have all the notes and characteristics of the Church, but in reverse and emptied of its divine content. It will be a mystical body of the Antichrist that will in all externals resemble the mystical body of Christ.

It is hard to think of a better description of the apostate Newchurch of the New Order, founded in 1964 at the Vatican II Anticouncil to replace the Catholic Church, and its leaders the Newpopes, who in word or deed no longer even claim to be Catholic popes, let alone act like Catholic popes..

True Catholics, Our Lord warned: “There shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders, insomuch as to deceive (if possible) even the elect” (Matthew 24:24/DRV). Unfortunately, Bishop Sheen, who was so accurate in his prophecies, himself succumbed to the Counterfeit Church that he had predicted. He fell prey to the apostasy of Vatican II, but shortly thereafter came to regret it and tried to return to the Catholic Church, but never quite made it. He was too damaged by his sycophancy to the very structure that he himself had described as a Counterfeit Church “emptied of its divine content.”
