THE THREE PERSECUTIONS

The first persecution of the Church, when Christians were forced to bring sacrifice to idols by threat of exile, torture and death was carried out by force. 

The second persecution the Church endures is from false teachers and false brethren, and is carried out by means of craftiness and deceit. 

The third persecution will be from the Antichrist and will be the most dangerous of all because it will be accompanied by force, craftiness and deceit. His power will be used for enforcing his will and his miracles will be used for deceit. This will be the last persecution which will precede the last judgment; throughout the whole world, the Holy Church will be exposed to all the servants of the devil. 

St. Augustine
