A Catholic Take on Left Behind

As if we haven’t had enough of the Left Behind series, now a “major” motion picture starring Nicolas Cage is set to be released.

Unfortunately, this means that once again, people will succumb to the false notion that there is going to be a Rapture at which time the saved will be whisked away to heaven and the rest will be “left behind.”

Thank goodness we have someone like my friend Joyce Donahue to provide us with a good solid understanding of the Catholic approach to the end times. She was kind enough to provide us with access to a PowerPoint that she has prepared for a presentation she is giving. Check it out at her blog Liturgy and Catechesis Shall Kiss.
