Not “through a progressive ascendency, but only by God’s victory”

14 December 2014

“The Church will enter the glory of the kingdom only through this final Passover, when she will follow her Lord in his death and resurrection. The kingdom will be fulfilled, then, not by a historic triumph of the Church through a progressive ascendency, but only by God’s victory over the final unleashing of evil, which will cause his Bride to come down from heaven.”

– Catechism of the Catholic Church, 677
