Carol, you said that the Catechism says "Jews will be converted prior to his (Antichrist) reign." And that is incorrect. Jews will convert at the end due to 2 witnesses described in (Rev 11: 3-13) who preach for a time and are then put to death by the Antichrist before they rise after 3 days. So, Antichrist is ruling in Jerusalem before the Jews convert. If Israel is to enter the New Covenant one day, St Paul tells us that they will not do so a few at a time, but as an entire nation. Which means we have quite some time to go, but now that Saudi Arabia is abandoning the Palestinians, things are moving faster. Israel does not seem like it may have to end up with 2 state solution after all. The help Israel needs from Saudi Arabia, not Rome is immense to the coming of Antichrist. If the Warning arrives soon, this miracle will bring mass conversion to the Gentiles and spread the Gospel to a universal dimension. And that will then unmask the Antichrist in Jerusalem.
