Daniel the Prophet predicted the abomination of the desolation in the Holy Place
Regarding the first interpretation: In the Old Testament, it happened that after the time of Daniel's prophecy, a tyrant put an end to the real sacrifice in the Temple and replaced it with ceremonies to honor the pagan idols. Antiochus IV, indeed, did this and greatly profaned the Temple. The 2nd Book of Maccabaeus describes it eloquently:
"But not long after the king sent a certain old man of Antioch, to compel the Jews to depart from the laws of their fathers and of God: And to defile the temple that was in Jerusalem, and to call it the temple of Jupiter Olympius: and that in Gazarim of Jupiter Hospitalis, according as they were that inhabited the place.
"And very bad was this invasion of evils and grievous to all. For the temple was full of the riot and revelings of the Gentiles: and of men lying with lewd women. And women thrust themselves of their accord into the holy places, and brought in things that were not lawful. The altar also was filled with unlawful things, which were forbidden by the laws." (II Mac 6:1-5)
We see that there are four elements that characterize this abomination:
- The ceasing of the sacrifice due to God in the Temple;
- The dedication of the Temple to a false god, an idol;
- The moral scandals committed by pagans inside the Sacred Place;
- The presence of unlawful things placed on the altar.
The ensemble of this Chapter 24 speaks of the symptoms that precede the establishment of this abomination. Specifically, they are:
- Many will speak as if they were Christ; many false prophets will appear;
- Men will hear of wars and rumors of wars; nations will rise up against nations;
- Pestilences, famines and earthquakes will take place;
- The good ones will be persecuted and betrayed;
- Charity will grow cold.
When speaking about the end times, Our Lord veiled the present day apostasy of the conciliar Popes
In fact, before mentioning the abomination, He said: "But he that shall persevere to the end, he shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world, for a testimony to all nations, and then shall the consummation come." (Mt 24:13-14)
So, the general order should be:
- A great apostasy in which Catholics will see the abomination of desolation in the Holy Place;
- A chastisement proportional to the Deluge and the End of the World;
- A period when the Gospel will be preached to the entire world;
- The End of the World and the Second Coming of Our Lord.
To justify my suggestion, let me only consider what happened in this ending month of June, which should be dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and instead was dedicated to "gay pride."
The papal glorification of this scandalous homosexual festival was made on June 22, 2022, when Pope Francis received a delegation of six "transgenders" from different countries at a public audience on St. Peter's Square.
To be a secret homosexual is an abomination because it is to have the vice of sinning against nature. To publicly proclaim oneself a homosexual is still a graver scandal because it is a mockery of public morality, Natural Law and Catholic Morals. To make a surgery to castrate oneself and insert plastic breasts in one's chest - or the equivalent ablation of breasts and insertion of a plastic male genital for a woman - is a monstrosity because it is the apex of indecency added to a public proclamation of revolt against the nature God gave each one. I believe that this monstrosity of "changing sexes" is inspired by and closely linked to Satanism.

So, I suggest that this action of Francis characterizes the abomination of desolation in the Holy Place.
Someone could ask: Why do you single out this particular action when we have seen Bergoglio doing so many other scandalous things?
It is true. There are a multitude of other things done by the Conciliar Popes – and by Francis in particular – that show us that the ensemble of the post-conciliar era can be defined as the abomination of desolation in the Holy Place.
Thus, I am not suggesting that the public reception of these "transgenders" is the only thing that characterizes the abomination, but it is, along with the enthroning of the Pachamama at the Vatican (here and here), and the official prohibition of the Tridentine Mass the three most spectacular ones. They bring to mind the descriptions in the Book of the Maccabaeus and the Gospel where Our Lord spoke of the abomination.
Therefore, I am proposing that this can be the interpretation of those veiled words of Our Lord: "He that readeth let him understand."
