Is the World About to End?

My brother found these links in Youtube. I feel it's something everyone must know and understand thus reason of posting it here. I checked on the website and found related articles that contributed a thirst for answers. Said articles were carefully researched and studied by the Benedictine community.

If you want to read more of their other articles, I have included a link to their website on the header tab "CATHOLIC FAITH".

Overview of the Benedictine Community
(Excerpts from the website)

The said community lives under the Rule of St. Benedict. "The hours ordered by the Rule to be devoted daily to systematic reading and study, have given the world many of the foremost scholars and writers, so that the term 'Benedictine learning' has been for long centuries a byword indicative of the learning and laborious research fostered in the Benedictine cloister. The regulations regarding the reception and education of children, moreover, were the germ from which sprang up a great number of famous monastic schools and universities which flourished in the Middle Ages.”(4)  The work of education and the cultivation of literature have always been looked upon as belonging by right to the Benedictines.(5)

Besides being the chief educational centers during the Middle Ages, the monasteries were, moreover, the workshops where precious manuscripts were collected, preserved, and multiplied.  To the monastic transcribers the world is indebted for most of its ancient literature, not only the Scriptures and the writings of the Fathers, but those of the classical authors also.(6)"

The Benedictine Community

"As is obvious from our website, our community is heavily involved with educating people about what they must know and do in order to save their souls, which is the most important work of charity with which anyone could be involved.  “Without faith it is impossible to please God” (Heb. 11:6).  And without the Catholic faith it is impossible to be saved.  Therefore, our work as Catholic Benedictine monks – especially in this time of the great apostasy – necessarily involves educating Catholics about the true dogmas of the Church and condemning the heresies that are rampant today.  Our work also deeply involves exposing the counterfeit Catholic Church of the Vatican II sect, which is deceiving millions of those who profess to be Catholic.  This counterfeit Vatican II sect – with its antipopes – is the primary enemy of Jesus Christ today.  It is most dangerous for the salvation of souls because it purports to be the Catholic Church but it is not.  This is why we dedicate much effort to exposing it.

We also work and pray for the salvation of all non-Catholics, producing and distributing mass quantities of information with the goal of converting them to the one true faith, outside of which no one can be saved.  In our apostolic work (called an “apostolate”), we have distributed almost 1 million copies of our videos, audios, DVDs and books.  The material that we have distributed and continue to distribute covers a wide variety of topics that are essential, including (to name a few): the necessity of prayer; the eternity and pains of Hell; the shortness of life; miraculous conversion stories; the authenticity of Sacred Scripture; the special creation of the earth; the refutation of the theory of evolution; the miracles and marvels of the Catholic saints; the importance of the message of Fatima; the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin; the Communist and Freemasonic plot against the Catholic Church; the evils of Rock Music; the false and invalid New Mass; the false Second Vatican Council; the false Vatican II antipopes; the dogma outside the Church there is no salvation; and many others.

We also have spoken personally to thousands concerning the true Catholic faith and a person’s obligation to profess it. 

Our Community is dedicated first and foremost to Jesus Christ, our Savior, and the worship of the Most Holy Trinity (Father, Son and Holy Ghost)– the One True God – and the profession of the Catholic faith whole and inviolate.  Secondly, our Community is deeply dedicated to the promotion of the Holy Rosary as the primary private devotion for a Catholic. Just as without the faith it is impossible to please God, so it is true that without a strong prayer life it is impossible to be saved.  We especially promote the 15 decade Rosary, which the monks recite each day.  We believe that the 15 decade Rosary is the key to the salvation of many souls and we encourage everyone to attempt to say it and promote it to others. The monks have personally witnessed the incredible transformation in the lives of many people through the 15 decade Rosary.  The power of the Holy Rosary is truly amazing, and God has revealed that He has conferred even more efficacy upon the Holy Rosary in our dark days.  St. Louis De Montfort recommends one set of mysteries at three different times in the day as an effective way to say the entire Rosary each day.  We believe that the salvation of millions of souls hinges upon the practice of a true devotion to the Mother of God and the necessary foundation of a pure profession of the true Catholic faith.

In addition to the above, our community practices (and encourages others to practice) devotion to saints, not only by getting to know their extraordinary devotion to God by learning about their lives, but also by praying to them to intercede with God for us.   We have posted on our website a few prayers to saints that we recommend (and we plan to add more).  At Most Holy Family Monastery we recite at least one prayer each day to St. Benedict (our founder), St. Therese of Lisieux, St. Michael the Archangel, Jacinta the shepherdess of Fatima, St. Joseph, and St. Jude."
