Lord of the Rings: Apocalyptic Prophecies

"The book is too original and too opulent for any final judgment on a first reading. But we know at once that it has done things to us. We are not quite the same men." - C.S. Lewis on Tolkien's 'Lord of the Rings'

Darkness covers the land, war and rumours of war threaten the lands of Middle Earth, the powers of evil are rising, the earth itself is convulsed, yet there is hope; a small band of courageous souls enter upon a nigh impossible quest to quell a diabolical enemy, while a hidden king comes to claim his rightful throne through the turmoil of battle to restore his kingdom as foretold by prophets of old.

 The plot of J.R.R. Tolkien’s classic High Fantasy epic, Lord of the Rings, is it not?

However, the above narrative may be more than a fantastic story. It is possible Tolkien was inspired by the astounding “Great Catholic Monarch” prophecies yet to be fulfilled. 

In fact, not many Catholics are aware of these prophecies, and for those who have read them do not believe, for they indeed sound surreal as though penned by a fiction author despite having been imparted by approved saints and mystics of the Church throughout the centuries. Some famous mystics who foretold of the Great Monarch include St. Remy, St. Isadore of Seville, St. Bede the Venerable, St. Hildegard of Bingen, St. Vincent Ferrer, St. Francis of Paola, Venerable Bartholomew Holzhauser, Bl. Anne-Katherine Emmerich, Blessed Anna Maria Taigi of Rome, St Jean-Baptiste-Marie Vianney also known as the Curé of Ars, St. John Bosco and Marie-Julie Jahenny.

These little known prophecies concerning the chastisement of the Earth and the restoration of the French Monarchy and Holy Roman Empire may sound fantastic, but in truth are downright frightening, condemning the sinful corruption of both the Church and the secular world alike. One may dare to suggest these foretellings have been suppressed from the majority of the faithful due to the damning nature of the warnings from Heaven despite the mystics receiving Church approval. Yet, the prophecies are available for those who seek, and Tolkien being a devout Catholic may have woven threads of these revelations into his famous epic as the reader will discover in the free PDF book “Lord of the Rings: Apocalyptic Prophecies”.

Selected Quotes:

 “Tolkien did admit that, 'As a guide, I had only my own feelings for what is appealing or moving.' In other words ~ he wrote about what interested him ~ and despite his protestation of including anything allegorical into his tale, Catholic history and mystic prophecy obviously received its fair share of attention ...”

“There are many forms of tyrants, but there are none so terrible as those stifling their own people in the name of freedom.”

“... the reader is probably wondering that if Tolkien did indeed fashion two of his heroic characters from Catholic prophecies, what about the evil protagonists? Were any of them inspired by these little-known revelations concerning future times? The answer is yes, but to discover the links between the myth and the prophecies, we must venture not only into the realm of unnerving revelations, but also into the murky world of secret sects, dark plots, occult signs, bloody revolutions and conspiracy theories ~ we must probe deep into the burning Eye of Sauron.”

“Heaven is not a republic.”
