delivered during the Lenten retreat for the Pope and top Vatican officials.

The cardinal comments that

- Christians tempted to set aside their belief in Christ as the only saviour in order to promote dialogue with others are being tempted by the Antichrist.

- the Antichrist presents himself as a pacifist, ecologist and ecumenist. He convokes an ecumenical council and seeks the consensus of all the Christian confessions, conceding something to each one.

- The crowds follow him, except for tiny groups of Catholics, Orthodox and Protestants.

Lee provided a link to Soloviev's story of the Antichrist down below in a comments box. Since both John Paul II and now Benedict pay attention to this story, it deserves a reading. Check it out. These two popes may just be trying to send us a message. If they are, it's one that shouldn't be ignored.
