"The devil has always attempted, by means of the heretics, to deprive the world of the Mass,
making them precursors of the Anti-Christ, who, before anything else, will try to abolish and will actually abolish the Holy Sacrament of the altar,
as a punishment for the sins of men, according
to the prediction of Daniel: "And strength was given
him against the continual sacrifice' (Dan. 8:12)."
-St. Alphonsus Liguori, Doctor
of the Church, "The Holy Eucharist".
