A conversation about Christ’s Parousia with a Polish priest, Fr. Adam Skwarczyński, Doctor of Theology who is well versed in Christian spirituality. During the interview Fr. Adam highlights certain mystic visions as well as comments, facts and messages of contemporary visionaries pertaining to the divinely revealed knowledge of the future. It allows us to become better acquainted with impending events, preparing us for a radical change in our lives and the world around us as we know it. Fr. Adam also explains why some of the twentieth century saints expected a New Spring in the Church, i.e. a New Descent of the Holy Spirit.
“This is one of the most amazing, beautiful, hopeful interviews I have ever seen. I pray every priest and person of Good Will will watch and heed. Please God.
He speaks very articulately that which Our Lady teaches us in prayer. Please watch it all and Share with your beloved priests”. – Debbie Womack
“Parousia” – Classical usage
From the Ptolemaic period to the second century of the common era “parousia” was used in the East as a technical expression to denote the arrival or visit of a king or emperor, and celebrated the glory of the sovereign publicly. In memory of the visit of Emperor Nero to the cities of Patras and Corinth, advent coins were struck that carried the legend Adventus Augusti Corinth. The Greek word parousia here corresponded to the Latin word advent. The numerous journeyings of the Emperor Hadrian were celebrated by many advent coins, and often new eras were reckoned from date of the parousia.
- Physical presence, arrival – The main use is the physical presence of a person, the prospect of the physical arrival of that person, especially the visit of a royal or official personage and sometimes as an extension of this usage, a formal “occasion”. In astrological usage it refers to the presence of a planet at a point on the zodiac.
- Property – A less common and distinct secondary meaning is to refer to a person’s material substance, property, or inheritance, including contribution in money.
