Roman Catholic Church admits to giving the infamous Mark of the Beast.
All references below are from the Church Magisterium.
Rev. 13:16-17… "Et facit omnes pusillos et magnos et divites et pauperes
et liberos et servos accipere characterem in dextera manu sua aut
in frontibus suis, et ne quis possit emere aut vendere, nisi qui habet
characterem, nomen bestiae aut numerum nominis eius. "
= mark of the Beast Antichrist.
mark is given in the sacraments of baptism, confirmation and holy orders.
of Trent confirms:
The Seventh Session
DECREE ON THE SACRAMENTS
CANON IX.-If any one saith, that, in the three sacraments, Baptism, to
wit, Confirmation, and Order, there is not imprinted in the soul a character,
that is, a certain spiritual and indelible Sign, on account of which they
cannot be repeated; let him be anathema.
Latin Trent text reads:
"Si quis dixerit, in tribus sacramentis, baptismo scilicet, confirmatione
et ordine, non imprimi characterem in anima, hoc est signum quoddam
spirituale et indelebile, unde ea iterari non possunt: a. s."
Mark is alleged to be indelible, given through the sign of the cross on
the subject's forehead by the right hand of the priest or bishop.
or prophecy fulfilled?
