It is in the night when persons live totally according to the fall. And when you do not accept any Divine Truth, you are living according to the fall. When you accept no Divine Revelation and, worse, not even Natural Truth, or Reason, you are completely blind spiritually. This is the Euro Civs world of the last generation. They do not even live according to reason.
For, reason testifies to monotheism and natural moral law. Therefore Atheists are totally irrational, and relativists are totally irrational, since reason and the heart CAN distinguish between various conflicting doctrines as better or worse, at least in potential. And the world has not lived the natural law for a generation: Reason testifies that treating sexuality like recreation is gravely wrong. Reason testifies, even from scientific and human experience, that to abuse substances is wrong and harmful. Reason testifies that murdering babies is wrong, even from science. Reason testifies that persons older than you should be respected, for every man desires the same from his younger peers. Reason testifies that persons should seek not merely to KNOW but UNDERSTAND WHY things are. For a generation, the majority of Euro civ populations have not lived according to these natural laws.
Sexual revolution, pornography, sexual slavery, and now the insanity of same sex and transgender agendas. Abortion, euthanasia, drug and alcohol abuse, atheism, relativism, disrespect of parents and authority, materialism.
Therefore, since it has been the night in the former Christendom for a generation, it is no wonder that the Church has caught very few fish and even lost many.
But what can we say, accept that there will be no substantial catches until the light begins to rise, just as the Apostles caught nothing all night till the Stranger on the beach appeared at dawn and said, "Cast your nets once more...."
What is the light? What is the dawn? THE APOCALYPTIC CONSEQUENCES OF THE DARKNESS! Man must see the ultimate TRUE fruits of atheism, and relativism and promiscuity, and fornication, and artiicial birth control, and abortion, and drug and alcohol addiction, and disrespect of authority, and intellectual laxity. This is the Chastisement. Then, as the true nature of the darkness is manifested, the true light will be seen, and fear of God will reenter the hearts of the world. They will repent; they will come back! Then shall the Church, as the light of dawn cracks, and at the command her Divine Savior, cast her nets over the RIGHT side of the boat, and catch a multitude of fish, to the point of breaking.
And how many fish? 153! What the heck does that mean? Well, our dear beloved mega-Doctor and Saint, Saint Augustine, observed that 153 = the sum of the first 17 counting numbers, that is, 153 = 1 + 2 +3 +... + 15 + 16 +17. What is 17? 17 = 10 + 7. Where have we seen 10 and 7? Aha! There are 7 Sacraments and there are 10 commandments! Hence, grace [7 sacraments] perfects nature [the 10 commandments], or that is, only by grace, or the 7 sacraments, have we the power to LIVE the 10 commandments!
"And when they [the "Two Witnesses", possibly the Church, or Scripture and Tradition] shall have finished their testimony, the beast, that ascendeth out of the abyss, shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. [Apostasy]  And their bodies shall lie in the streets of the great city, which is called spiritually, Sodom and Egypt, where their Lord also was crucified.  And they of the tribes, and peoples, and tongues, and nations, shall see their bodies for three days and a half: and they shall not suffer their bodies to be laid in sepulchres.  And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry: and shall send gifts one to another, because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt upon the earth. [the modern world of the last generation has mocked the faith, regarding it as dead. They have not bothered to give it due respect, and celebrated that they no longer need conscience].
" And after three days and a half, the spirit of life from God entered into them. And they stood upon their feet, and great fear fell upon them that saw them. [As the chastisement enters in, and the apocalyptic horros of not listening to the Church begin to manifest, the world acquires fear of God and starts to reconsider the ancient wisdom of Our Mother on earth]  And they heard a great voice from heaven, saying to them: Come up hither. And they went up to heaven in a cloud: and their enemies saw them. [The Church and Her testimony is vindicated, Christians are reunited]  And at that hour there was made a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell: and there were slain in the earthquake names of men seven thousand: and the rest were cast into a fear, and gave glory to the God of heaven."
