What has the Pope commanded all Catholics to do?

Answer

"First and foremost, it is the duty of all Catholics worthy of the name and wishful to be known as most
loving children of the church . . . to endeavor to bring back all civil society to the pattern and form of
Christianity which we have described." -Encyclical of Pope Leo XIII, "Immortale Dei," November 1, 1885,
"The Great Encyclical Letters of Leo XIII," page 132.
NOTE-The prophecy says that this power will make an image to the Papacy. In the days of
Constantine and his successors, the church made use of the civil power to carry out her aims: through this
means the Papacy was developed. In our own day the same theory is advocated, and prominent men in the
nation, in both church and state, are doing all they can to bring about the same result, which, when their
work is completed, cannot fail to fulfil the specifications of the prophecy. The climax will be an image of
the Papacy.
