I read in the new Catechism against Millennialism.

In several approved Catholic revelations to the mystics, there is something about a time of peace and conversion/great sanctity in the Church, for instance in relation to the great Pope and Monarch. How is this different from Millennialism?

thank you!
I'm not very educated when it comes to eschatology but I think the difference is that while Catholics may believe in time of great peace before the second coming many protestants believe that Christ will literally come to earth and reign for 1000 years before the final judgement. Catholics essentially believe that the second coming and the last judgement are connected whereas some protestants believe that they are completely separate. Some even believe that Christ will come even before that to "rapture" the church into heaven.
