THE CATHOLICS ARE REDUCED TO A SMALL MINORITY WITHIN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH

The Middle Ages showed an upheaval within the Catholic church that has continued up to this day.  Up to now, we are losing Catholics by the millions;  while those who have remained cannot brag that they have remained out of conviction.  

The deadliest attack on the Church comes from an economic system first espoused by Protestant Calvinists and happily embraced by rich Catholic businessmen.  And so, most nations who remained staunchly Catholic during the reformation had gradually turned Protestant during the industrial revolution.  The Catholics were converted to Protestantism not by doctrine but by a financial-economic system.  

In the course of natural human events, under such a virulent attack on the Church, one of two things could happen.  First, the Church could be reduced by her modern enemies to impotence, to an insignificant size and to utter silence.  Or, secondly, she could react against her enemies, rise once more and take the leadership of civilization as she has done in the past.    

Since the Church is not earthly, both can happen to her. . .and, in fact, is already happening to her.  Today, the true Church has been reduced to a small band, forgotten and overlooked amidst the vast number of Catholics, returning as it were to its origins with the Pope as her head.  And, as God had designed, every time the Church becomes unfaithful to her Bridegroom, Christ Himself initiates a reform using men and groups  from whom no one expects a reform.  But the reform will benefit only a few, as Christ Himself prophesied.
